    The original, December 2, 1999
    By A Customer
    I loved this book as a child back in the fifties, and was delighted to find it still available. It begins similarly to “The Night Before Christmas”: “‘Twas the day before Christmas, and all through the hills…” and continues in verse, telling the familiar story for the very first time, with more wit and charm than any watered-down Disney version could possible supply. I’m so glad that my small nieces will now have a chance to enjoy it. Too bad Robert L. May is not often given the credit he deserves for this Christmas treasure.

    WHAT IS GOING ON, AMAZON?, December 11, 2008
    By 

    At the writing of this review, nearly half of the customer reviews are of completely different books. In fact, all of the non-five-star reviews have nothing to do with this edition, entitled “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, based on the original story by Robert L. May, and illustrated by David Wenzel. If it were not for this error, the book would in fact have 5 stars.

    The illustrations are beautiful, and the verse I do not consider lengthy at all. Such rich vocabulary and quirky similes are often overlooked in modern children’s books. My favorite line is: “And Santa was right, as he usually is. The fog was as thick as a soda’s white fizz.”

    Money well spent.

    What a great book! BUT NOT THE ORIGINAL RUDOLPH STORY, November 9, 2004

    This review is from: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer) (Little Golden Book) (Hardcover)
    This is such a great book. It’s not the original Rudolph – if you’re looking for that one, it’s written by Robert May and was commissioned by Montgomery Ward in 1939. It can usually be found locally in bookstores, and when amazon has it in stock. It’s a better story than this one – this one is just a little spin-off of the Rankin-Bass production we see on television, as the cover depicts. It has the Yukon Cornelius, snow monster, etc. in it. I still get goosebumps whenever I see Rudolph coming back to the Island of misfit toys to pick them up with Santa’s sleigh – but that’s only in the movie and not in this book. Some things you never forget as a child and have to pass down to your own.
