So I was happy to be able to review The Legend of Ranger, the Reindeer Who Couldn't Fly by Alan Salisbury, illustrated by Roberta Baird.
It also came with a CD that contained a song called Dream and Believe (Ranger's Song), that was quite catchy, as well as the audio book of The Legend of Ranger, the Reindeer Who Couldn't Fly.
The book is about what the title implies: a reindeer named Ranger, who can't fly. He's Rudolph's brother. He dreams of being able to help fly Santa's sleigh. He yearns to find out the secret of flying. Will he be able to figure it out?
