Valerie L. Egar

Cornish resident Valerie L. Egar is the author of Oh No! Reindeer Flu!, a hard cover children’s picture book. The book is illustrated by Canadian artist Tamara Campeau and was printed in Maine using 100% wind power.

When the reindeer fall ill, Santa worries the toys might not get delivered on time. Enthusiastic huskies declare an emergency and volunteer to pull the sleigh. An eager puppy, Frost, also volunteers to help and rides next to Santa, but almost tips the sleigh trying to catch a falling star. Suitable for children 2-8 and dog lovers of any age.
