Summary

Fans of the greatest reindeer of all will have a double helping of Christmas fun with this collection, which includes the title story plus Rudolph Shines Again. Near and dear to so many hearts, this is the story, the original story, of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, written by Robert L. May in 1939. Rudolph, loveable and generous, humble and good, embodies the spirit of Christmas and reminds us of the magical possibilities that exist within us all.

In the companion story, Rudolph Shines Again, Rudolph loses his light and is certain he is of no use to Santa now; he decides to go far away, where no one knows how bright his nose used to be. But on his journey, something magical happens. As enchanting as the original story, Robert L. May's uplifting sequel to his classic tale Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a joyous celebration of the spirit of Christmas.

Make this a holiday tradition.

We all know the song and the movie, but I have to confess I don't think I've ever read the actual original book version of this classic story. And being in the same meter as The Night Before Christmas, it has even more connection for the holidays.

Rudolph Shines Again is interesting but not as compelling as the original story.

The audio performance is excellent and very accessible to children and adults. And you can sing along at the end to a selection of holiday songs.

The original I never knew

Good, simple story overshadowed by teleplay. Great rediscovery of misplaced gift, restored to Christmas lore.

Childhood Christmas

I absolutely loved this book! The story was wonderful and brought me back to my childhood. The narrator was very nice and pleasant to listen to. The songs at the end were a great surprise. In these trying times it really got me into the Christmas spirit!

Light and easy and makes you smile

I’d never read the story behind Rudolph. The first story explains how Santa came to realize Rudolph’s nose could be of value to him that foggy Christmas Eve. :) This was a good easy listen and a good diversion from day to day life. They tagged on some light Christmas music at the end which I appreciate. Good Christmas cheer even in September.
