I was so excited when Maxine got in touch about reviewing this book. I yelled for my daughter to come read the synopsis and she was totally on board with reading it too!
Ronaldo is the top flying cadet at the prestigious Reindeer Flying Academy. He dreams of getting his flying license and becoming one of Santa’s reindeer, just like his hero, Vixen.
In the first adventure in the Ronaldo series, the second year flying cadets face their toughest ever flying test – The Endurance Challenge. Will Ronaldo be victorious and lift the silver cup? Or will mean brothers Dasher, Comet and Prancer ruin his chance for success?
This is a really fun read for kids and adults alike. Very well written and the illustrations are class. Ronaldo and his antics are great craic. I started reading this with my daughter, got one chapter in and next thing I know I don’t have a daughter, or a story, sitting with me! My girl read it, wrote her review and then left me to read it all on my lonesome. Truth be told I had as much fun reading it by myself as I would do with the likes of Roald Dahl’s The Twits.
The book was very nice. I loved the part where Ronaldo fell into the carrot cake. I can’t wait for the next book.
I must say that I agree with her!
Thank you, Maxine, for ‘my’ copy of this book for review.
