This beautiful story, set in Santaland at Christmastime, will capture readers' hearts and imagination

Jingo, The Reindeer Who Never Grows

Not until you are bigger.

Jingo, a new book by Anthony Gervaise and illustrated by Karen Little, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Jingo was lost on a snowy winter night in Santaland and found in the forest by Prancer, one of Santa’s reindeer. The little white reindeer soon became Santa’s favorite little pet, living with him and sleeping next to Santa’s fireplace. As the time goes on, Jingo does not grow any bigger. On Christmas Eve, Jingo wants to help pull the sleigh, but he is too small and Santa tells him, “Not until you are bigger.” This is a beautiful story, set in Santaland at Christmastime. It will capture the hearts and imagination of all who read it.

“Jingo, The Reindeer Who Never Grows originated in my father’s mind. It began with a song. Dad wrote at least fifty songs over the years. Three were recorded, and one carried Billboard’s highest rating of four stars, but that is another long story,” says illustrator Karen Little.

“We both worked on Jingo, but after my dad passed away, it gathered dust until this year, when I decided it was time to get Jingo published. I have been a contractor for over thirty years, and I currently live in Cicero, a northern suburb of Syracuse, New York.”

Jingo, The Reindeer Who Never Grows is a 30-page paperback with a retail price of $16.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-9852-1. It was published by RoseDog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
