School Library Journal - 10/01/2015 K-Gr 2—Anja, from A Christmas Wish (2013) and A Tiny Wish (2015, both Random), is back for a third adventure, bringing the same stunning photography of Nordic winter scenes and adorable animal and child interactions. The wish this time is for a puppy, though this longing gets sated when the talking cardinal from the first book leads her to a foundling baby reindeer, whom she names Odin. A montage of playful moments of their time together follows, until Anja realizes that Odin should probably be with other reindeer. Luckily, Santa has an open spot on his team. With a similar quest to the North Pole and the "Was it all just a dream?" ending, this book will appeal to fans of the previous books, who will find much comfort in the familiarity. VERDICT A suitable addition.—Joanna Fabicon, Los Angeles Public Library - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
