Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This gentle Christmas Eve tale begins with a fresh blanket of snow and the soft jingle of bells, which chase away a small girl's thoughts of sleep. In her antlered onesie, Ollie peers through her bedroom window die-cut on the page to reveal a shining winter landscape dotted with silver foil flakes before running outside with her sled in tow. She hurries after the bells' sound, tobogganing downhill and into the dark woods, where she finds a bell-studded collar snagged on a tree. As she slips the collar from the branch, a reindeer steps out of the shadows (crunch, crunch, crunch) and offers Ollie an unforgettable ride through the night sky, in thanks for returning its sleigh bells. Killen works magic through simplicity in this understated holiday story. Sprinklings of onomatopoeia enliven the unfolding backyard adventure, as well-placed cutouts and red accents pop against the serene illustrations' white and charcoal hues. A perfect bedtime read; little ones will cozy up to this sweet book and drift off on their own reindeer-fueled flights of fancy.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Killen (Fluff and Billy) brings an understated style to a quietly magical tale of holiday miracles and nighttime adventure, originally published in the U.K. When a mysterious jingling awakens Ollie on Christmas Eve, she hops out of bed and zips down a snow-covered hill on her sled-"whooooooosh!"-until she reaches a dark wood. Ollie's head-to-toe reindeer pajamas (antlers included) and the toy reindeer she carries make her personal fascinations clear to readers while hinting at what lies in the forest. After the girl spots a reindeer collar dangling from a branch, she returns it to its rightful owner, and is treated to a midnight ride home, captured in a wordless spread of girl and reindeer ascending, triumphantly, into the night sky. Die cuts, foil accents, and bits of red detailing bring flair to Killen's hushed black-and-white snowscapes. Ages 4-8. Agent: Elizabeth Roy, Elizabeth Roy Literary. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
