A story in the Christmas-gone-wrong tradition

E. Dorinda Shelley made Christmas reading fun again with “Santa’s Sleigh-Train,” her first holiday storybook.
 
The story revolves around Santa finding a way to avert a potential Christmas catastrophe brought forth by the untimely sickness of Rudolph the reindeer, whose “nose wasn’t working right and was too dim.” With Rudolph too sick to guide the sleigh, Santa has to quickly find another way to deliver the toys to kids.  
 
BlueInk Review recently reviewed “Santa’s Sleigh-Train,” calling it “an unfussy tale of one more averted Christmas catastrophe” and “enjoyable despite its lack of surprises.” The independent book review publication found the book’s illustrations to be “engaging, if a little unpolished,”, the story “straightforward, simply written,” and the plot “easy for even very young readers to follow, despite a few challenging words.”
 
Of course, “Santa’s Sleigh-Train” is not without a few flaws, as BlueInk Review has noted:
 
The story itself doesn’t bring anything entirely fresh to the genre of picture books featuring a threat to Christmas presents being delivered on time, and in fact the solutions feel a bit too easy: Santa doesn’t try out any other ideas before he lands on the train as the best one, and the solution is never shown to have unforeseen side effects.
 
Still, the book gives young readers a chance to watch Santa problem-solve when Rudolph falls ill.
