The Unstoppable Reindeer

It's the night before Christmas, and Comet is ready...until he's injured in an unexpected elf incident and replaced by a rookie named Freddy.

Comet can't believe his bad luck. Then he realizes something even worse-in all the confusion, Santa has left the toys behind and isn't answering his phone. Injury and all, Comet sets out to deliver the presents, crisscrossing the globe from Japan and England to France and Cleveland. After a run-in with a goose, a near miss with a minivan, and too many chimney crash landings to count, can Comet hobble his way into pulling off a Christmas miracle?

"A calamity-prone, wildly expressive Comet saves Christmas in this holiday romp, driven by Benton's vibrant ink and watercolor cartoons...will amuse readers of all ages." - Publishers Weekly

"Along with being lit up by themes of caring for others and shouldering responsibility, this hilarious seasonal outing offers great read-aloud potential for its regular but natural-sounding metrics and rhyme." - Booklist (Starred Review)

"You might want to gift this one a little earlier than Christmas so you can read it to your little ones every night leading up to December 25. It's the adorable (and all-too-relatable) tale of Comet, an unstoppable reindeer." - Parade

A bit of slapstick, a bit of sweet, and an altogether welcome, funny look at a different and just-as-determined reindeer, Comet the Unstoppable Reindeer is laugh out loud, thoroughly entertaining reading. - Fab Book Reviews
