The Island of Misfit Toys (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer)

The Island of Misfit ToysWritten by Brendan Deneen, Illustrated by George Kambadais

This book tells several little stories involving the toys from the animated movie Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. There are some characters from the movie, such as Charlie-in-the-box and Hermy, so it will be familiar to young readers. The story is told over 4 chapters. Charlie gets lost during a storm and the other toys, with the help of Yukon and the Snow Monster, must go and find him before Christmas. Although I found the story overly simple, the illustrations are wonderful and children will enjoy the book.
