This is a charming little book that will be great that will be even better to encourage little ones to go to bed on Christmas eve. Ollie is chasing after a jingly noise and makes a new friend!

My three (nearly four) year old twin girls really enjoyed the story in this book. It is a magical Christmas tale full of wonder and fun. The cut outs where a real hit as where the beautiful simple illustrations. I did wonder at first whether the black, white and red colour scheme might seem a bit dull to them but they liked it. As it was set at night time the colours did seem very fitting in fact. A nicely illustrated book with a sweet story perfect for reading the night before Christmas.

I read it to Perdy aged 4 aged 4

Perdita says: It's good. It's very, very good because it has loads of good things like lots of stars on the pictures and the little cut out windows on some of the pages. I loved her (Ollie) finding the collar and giving it to him (the reindeer). There is nothing bad in the book. It's loads of fun.

Mummy says: The artwork and colours are an interesting change to most books, I like the little cut out details found on some of the pages. Perdy was interested in the story and enjoyed it so much that she wanted to read it again and then took the book to bed with her. For me though the story was not very captivating nor original, like a poor rip off of The Snowman with less content. I also assumed that Ollie was a boy from the title but Ollie is actually a SHE! As my daughter is taken with the story I would read it to her again but it wouldn't jump out at me to choose this.

Perdy gives the book 5 stars whereas I would've given it 2.

This is a heartwarming tale of a little girl who meets a Christmas reindeer. The pictures are exceptional and the peep holes to the next page make the story more exciting to read. My little boy loves this story.

I read it myself (an adult) & to PoppyEC aged 3 aged 3

5 stars
A stunningly illustrated book, evocative of both modern Christmas and the magic from days gone by. Highly recommended, both for pre 3 yr olds as well as older children. It's safe to say, in years to come this book could become a modern classic. It's simply spell-binding.

I read it to Ivy aged 3 aged 3

5 stars
My daughter and I absolutely loved this book. It really was magical and made us feel very festive. The story is about a little girl called Ollie who follows the sound of jingles to find one of santas reindeer. They then go on a magical flying adventure on Christmas Eve. Perfect book to read at this time of the year. Ivy loves all things Christmassy so this book was perfect all round. Also loved the cut outs inside the book and the shiny parts on the illustrations it makes the book feel really special.

A must buy for a wonderful Christmas read it is truly enchanting. A short but beautiful story about a little girl who finds a reindeer's jingly collar; she meets the reindeer and returns it and has an adventure .  
The illustrations are so pretty and there are little shapes cut out so you can see a glimpse of the next page. 
I would definitely recommend

I read it to ToyStoryTot aged 4 aged 4 & to TwinkleBubs aged 1 aged 1

4 stars
A short, simple story about a little girl who finds a reindeer and has a magical flight across the night skies. The story is made a bit more special by the beautiful illustrations, cut outs and silver embellishment across the pages. A fun, festive book for the younger ones that would be perfect tucked into those Christmas Eve boxes.

Great illustrations but my child prefers lots of bright colours this has lots of lovely black red white and silver, I was suprised ollie was a girl as my son is Ollie so I expected it to be a boy. But great story and a pleasure to read. Would recommend as a gift to boy or girl of 4 or 5.
