Ronaldo: The Phantom Carrot Snatcher

Ronaldo the Flying Reindeer Book 2


Ronaldo is the top cadet at the prestigious Reindeer Flying Academy. After the first of three speed tests, he is on course to win the Golden Snowflake medal and break the speed record. (He can visualise the headlines in The Weekly Flyer comic: ‘Roaring Ronny makes history!’) Exhausted after flying, Ronaldo settles down to enjoy his carrots but they are gone! The Phantom Carrot Snatcher has struck again. 

When Ronaldo finds the culprit hiding near his house, he’s terrified. It’s a creature feared by every reindeer to have ever lived – a wolf! But the wolf cub, Ernie, has lost her pack and Ronaldo is no ordinary reindeer. He is brave, and with his best friend, Rudi, they embark on a superhero mission to reunite the wolf with her family, learning important lessons about themselves and each other as they go. Will they find her family? And will Ronaldo win the Golden Snowflake medal - or realise friends are more important?

A delightfully illustrated tale for children aged 7-9 years, Ronaldo: The Phantom Carrot Snatcher teaches children about friendship, sacrifice, and of thinking about others before yourself.
