“Rufus the Barking Reindeer”: Rufus is a pup with a problem…he wants to be a reindeer. More than that, he’d quite like to be Rudolph. You know what? Some wishes do come true…but at a cost.

“Rufus Sniffs Out Christmas”: Christmas has Rufus hooked. He can’t get enough of it. But where has it disappeared to? Rufus, in his second appearance, remains as adorable as can be.

“My Dearest Darling Santa”: This book is a collection of letters and drawings sent to Father Christmas throughout the year, giving us an inside track to a few trade secrets. How does he get round the world in just one night? Did Coca Cola make his suit red? How does he keep an eye on children to determine his naughty and nice list? A regular contributor is Megan. We slowly learn of her problems, but how she takes heart and comfort from Santa’s correspondence…and the kind words of a clever white hare.

“Earonymous & the Christmas Challenge”: The next story is a fairytale involving the heroic mouse with giant ears called Earonymous and his super-talented friends with hyper-sensitive senses, who travel to face the testing Baron’s Christmas Challenge. This shows what friendship is all about.

“The Lost Pole: An Elf’s Tale”: This offering in rhyme is about the day the North Pole lost its pole and its festive feel – all because of a robbing rascal of an elf named Sven.

“Santa’s Barrel”: Santa isn’t best-pleased when he gets caught without his famous red costume and ends up in his birthday suit. How will he get out of this one? The poem reveals all – if you excuse the pun.

“Clueless Lukas”: Our newest addition is a story about a young reindeer who can be easily dazzled and causes some North Pole mayhem as a result. Can he make amends or will Lukas be forever nicknamed clueless?
