Dasher is an adventurous young reindeer with a wish in her heart. She spends her days with her family under the hot sun in a traveling circus, but she longs for a different life — one where there is snow beneath her hooves and the North Star above her head. One day, when the opportunity arises, Dasher seizes her destiny and takes off in pursuit of the life she wants to live, and meets a nice man in a red suit with a horse-drawn sleigh.

Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant illustrates the nativity story in her powerful folk art style. Cynthia Rylant takes the beloved text of the nativity story, as told in the King James Bible, and lovingly illustrates it in her simple but bold style that has been called “stunning” by School Library Journal. This gentle interpretation of the birth of Jesus connected to some of his most important words has its own calm, quiet strength. This is a collectible book for all ages.

This 1999 Caldecott Honor Book features a playful depiction of a snowy day and the transformation of a city, perfectly captured in simple, poetic text and lively watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations.
