This is the story of Olive, a little Jack Russell-ish sort of dog who is sitting at home, wrapping presents for the holiday, when someone sings "all of the other reindeer" on the radio. But Olive hears the song as, "Olive, the other reindeer," and decides she'd better rush to the North Pole if she's supposed to be helping Santa. She doesn't look much like the rest of Santa's team, but Olive's particular talents may well save Christmas. The book that inspired a television special, and the prequel to Olive My Love, this is Olive's debut story, for kids of all ages, full of Vivian Walsh's sly humor and J.otto Seibold's distinctive, slightly cubist style of computer art.
