"Nine- to 12-year-olds will love this funny, fast-paced story" Good Housekeeping Christmas Gift Guide It's Christmas Eve and one of Santa's reindeers, Dave, is FED UP.

He's stuck behind boastful Rudolph again and a fart-in-the-face is the LAST STRAW. In the commotion, Santa crash lands on the roof of nine-year-old Holly’s home causing an almighty Christmas lights explosion that blasts the reindeers to far-flung corners of the Earth. It’s up to Dave and Holly to fly round the world to rescue all the reindeers. Can Holly and Dave get all the reindeers back to Santa to SAVE CHRISTMAS?  This funniest festive adventure is a must-read spin on The Night Before Christmas From the bestselling creators of The Fart That Changed the World and Escape the Rooms   Praise for The Great Christmas Reindeer: "Filled with humour [...] genuinely funny situations which younger readers will delight in as they root for the story's hero and heroine as they battle to save Christmas … Wonderfully illustrated by [Stephen's] sister, Anita, making this a very appealing choice for readers in KS2 … this would also make a wonderful shared bedtime read, with adults enjoying much of the humour too" Jacqui Sydney, book blogger "From the very first page, readers will laugh out loud at this off-the-wall tale of Santa's newest reindeer, Dave, and the trouble he (unintentionally) causes when Rudolph is boastful one too many times ...
