Robbie is the coolest reindeer in the far north; too clever to work, he is totally laid-back and unbelievably charming. He is a big success at Coldchester, an idyllic ski resort. The only problem is that Blitzen, head stag and king pin in Santa Claus’ team of sleigh-pulling reindeers, can’t stand him. However, Robbie gets on famously with Santa Claus, whom he meets at a party. He also finds Santa’s state-of-the-art sleigh brilliant. If only he hadn’t neglected his training, he could join the team right away. So, should he start training?
Robbie wouldn’t be as cool as he is if he didn’t have a much better idea.
