We know that Santa has a team of reindeers to help deliver presents but did you know that it has not always been that way? This is the story of a brave little reindeer called Dasher. When the story begins Dasher is part of a travelling circus and the family are not very happy at all, they are so far form home. Dasher escapes one night and what happens next is the stuff of Christmas legend.
About the Book
Discover the magical story of Dasher, Santa's very first reindeer, in a Christmas gift-book to treasure year after year. Dasher is a little doe with a wish in her heart. She spends her days with her family under the hot sun in a travelling circus, but she longs for a different life - one where there is snow beneath her hooves and the North Star above her head.
One day, when the opportunity arises, Dasher seizes her destiny and takes off in pursuit of the life she wants to live. It's not long before she meets a nice man in a red suit with a horse-drawn sleigh, a man named Santa. And soon, with the help of a powerful Christmas wish, nothing will be the same...
Matt Tavares' beautifully illustrated and evocatively told story bristles with all the magic of the festive season.
