“MOVE OVER RUDOLPH – RONALDO IS HERE TO STAY!”
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?
The young and the young at heart will appreciate its story. Because Ronaldo reminds us, if you work hard, and dream big …. we can all fly!
With the author’s kind permission, I shared this one with my seven year old granddaughter, Aisha .. and this is her review (as written herself)
I thought it was a rather lovely story. I read it over three days and I enjoyed it.
The two main parts of the book are: Ronaldo trying to win the endurance challenge of the flying academy, and trying to get his green fur back to normal.
You should look at the pictures – they’re amazing!
Perfect read for children and adults alike!
What a fabulous story! This is a chapter book, ideal for children who are reading by themselves and perfect for a bedtime tale.
The writing is entertaining and so very funny. It includes lots of elements of a child’s life – friends, bullying, self esteem and a loving family. It is easy to understand for the junior members of your family and clever enough to appeal to the adults. I’ve always admired authors who can encompass both in their writing.
The story stands on it’s own to make this a wonderful and highly recommended read, but the cherry on top has to be the illustrations. They are absolutely terrific and full of talent.
A superb read for the age range of 5-10 years. I really cannot speak highly enough of the quality of this one .. I totally loved it!
My grateful thanks to author Maxine Sylvester for sending me a copy of this book, and for allowing myself and my granddaughter to enjoy sharing it!
