Jan Brett is known for the beautiful and detailed artwork in her books, many of which are set in cold, snowy places. In The Wild Christmas Reindeer, the illustrations involve an entire pile of reindeer who manage to get their antlers all tangled up together! Teeka, one of Santa's helpers, is tasked with getting the reindeer straightened out before it's time to fly the sleigh -- can she do it?
While this story veers a bit from "traditional" Santa lore by giving the reindeer different names, such as Tundra, Bramble, and Lichen (which I think are quite appropriate), it is still a cute story that involves dealing with a confusing situation. On the sidebars of the main illustrations, we see other helpers getting ready as each page counts the way up to Christmas Eve.
