Everyone knows a reindeer on the roof is normal. But you will never believe what happened!
I was standing at my window when I saw something in the sky. Do you know what it was?
It was a reindeer.
That is not unusual. My reindeer often fly around the North Pole. What was unusual, was the little girl and little boy riding on its back. Do you want to know more?
I must admit that it was partly my fault. You see, we had been testing the sleigh and flying around the world. I had stopped in Scotland to take a break, and when I took off again, I had left a reindeer behind. When I got home, I put the reindeer in their stable (instead of putting the reindeer on the roof, of course!). I should have counted them, but I forgot. This is what happened to the reindeer.
A boy and girl were playing in the park. They were only seven. Their names were Orla and Cullen. They heard a reindeer on the roof nearby cry out. The reindeer was scared. They asked their parents if they could save the reindeer, and their parents said yes.
Cullen and Orla climbed up onto the rooftop and found the reindeer. It was crying. Orla patted its head and told it that everything was going to be okay. Cullen had brought a carrot and fed it to the reindeer. The reindeer stopped crying and looked happier.
Cullen and Orla asked the reindeer if they could help it to get home. The reindeer could not talk, but the children could tell that the reindeer wanted their help. It crouched down on the roof and the two children climbed onto its back. The reindeer took off and flew high up into the sky. Higher than the clouds.
Cullen and Orla told me that they were both scared at first. They gripped on tight. Cullen and Orla could see their houses down below. They waved to their parents. Cullen was excited at how fast they were going. Orla was excited at how high they were in the sky.
A Happy Ending For A Reindeer On The Roof
When they got here, I gave them a tour of the North Pole. I took them home in my sleigh. Their parents were so happy to see them. My reindeer was so happy to be home too. Cullen and Orla are true heroes. They saved my lost reindeer and probably saved Christmas too.
