Jan Brett 1998
Another offering from Jan Brett. More Nordic inspired illustrations and a story about one of Santa's helpers, a girl named Teeka, who gets the job of taking care of Santa's reindeer. She has to prepare them for their Christmas Eve flight but they prove wild and unruly at first. Like all her other books, Brett has extra illustrations that tell a story along the edges of the page. The ones in this book show toys being made and a countdown to Christmas day.
