Reindeer aren’t supposed to be crushed into pens and displayed for travelling circus crowds. Yet Mama warns Dasher that attempting to break free from J.P. Finnegan’s Travelling Circus and Menagerie is fruitless and will only lead to reprisal. Therefore, Dasher consoles himself in the cool of the night with Mama’s stories of times past when she and Papa were young reindeer wandering free beneath the North Star.
Thereafter, Dasher wishes upon the star, lying awake and dreaming of cool snow and Northern areas.
So what might happen if strong winds break the gate free and Dasher is given a chance to escape? Could it be that in the woods he might chance upon a white bearded gentleman with a very heavy sleigh and a weary horse? Might Dasher offer to help Father Christmas pull the sleigh? Might this be the start of something truly magical?
Dasher is a beautiful picture book to be shared and loved across Christmas generations. Bookwagon is proud to share this glorious story.
