We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

A broken old sleigh and out-of-shape reindeer prompt an elf to create the Super Santa Sleigh 3000 Jet. Its speed and strength show promise, but the onboard computer proves unreliable, leading Santa to call for a reindeer rescue. Glossy digital cartoons play up the humor in this modern Christmas tale.

PreS-Gr 1—In this new edition of a book published by Scholastic Book Fairs in 2007, Santa tells readers of his discovery that his reindeer are too out of shape to fly the sleigh. So his elves build a cool jet for him, but when it turns out to have its drawbacks, Santa's newly fit reindeer come to the rescue on Christmas Eve. The slick Photoshop illustrations and no-frills text may please young readers who find the fat reindeer and shiny jet appealing, but there's nothing original here.—Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
