Rover Saves Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve, and disaster is looming. Jimmy and Robbie Mack have made twenty-seven sandwiches for Santa, and they’ve even peeled all Rudolf the reindeer’s carrots! But Rudolf won’t be eating carrots tonight – he’s sick with the flu. Which means Santa won’t be having his sandwiches either, because the sleigh is grounded and Santa is stuck! What’s going to happen to all the presents? Will children across the world wake up to empty stockings on Christmas morning? Will the big day be cancelled? Or can Rover the dog save Christmas? Well… what do you think?

    Hilarious! I love the Rover Adventures! They’re sooooo funny! I read this is school and it was one of the funniest novels we read together! So ridiculously funny and random. I really liked it! Please read it, and the other two Rover Adventures!! :D

    I think this book is Quite short but I think it tells you to believe in santa even if he doesn’t give you presents cos you’ll get some rom your family & friends, & you might already have Quite allot of presents so it doesn’t matter. YOU CAN STILL BELIVE IN SANTA!!!!
