'Rudolf the reindeer was lying in bed with a runny red nose and an ache in his head. 'I'm sorry,' he groaned. 'I just can't pull a sled. You'll have to ask my sister Ruby instead.'
'It's the night before Christmas and Rudolf is sneezing his little red nose off. So Santa needs another reindeer to help pull the sleigh. Rudolf's sister Ruby is a little reindeer who always finds herself in BIG trouble. Will she find a way to bring her best behaviour? Or will she bring chaos to Christmas Day?
'A cheeky and charming celebration of the Christmas spirit.' (Publisher's blurb)
'Once again, the delightfully cheeky Ruby the reindeer is causing all kinds of chaos on Christmas Eve.
''I miss Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen! Oh, Comet! Oh, Cupid! Oh, Donner and Blitzen! And big brother Rudolph! I wish they were here!' Sobbed the naughtiest, loneliest little reindeer.
'This Christmas, Ruby's family is visiting Granny and Pop, whose house full of breakable items is not the place for a very naughty reindeer. So Ruby is sent to the zoo for the holidays, and she has to bunk in with the stuck-up antelopes and the fussy zebras, which is no fun at all for an excitable reindeer.
'So on Christmas Eve, Ruby opens all the enclosures hoping for fabulous festivities and feasting - and creates chaos! With all the animals on the loose, and Santa delayed from delivering all his presents - how can Ruby right her wrongs and save Christmas for everyone?
'Ruby is at her mischievous best in this rollicking Christmas treat.' (Publication summary)
'This year, Ruby the reindeer causes serious disruption to Santa's delivery schedule and to the school Christmas concert. With Ruby in the mix, the show might not go on AND Christmas presents might not be delivered at all . . . Ruby the reindeer makes Christmas Eve more entertaining than ever before!'
