Randolph the Moose lives with his mother in the Great White North. After a chance encounter with the reindeer from Santa Claus’ sleigh-pulling team, Randolph finds new joy in trail running as he trains to join the reindeer in Santa’s flight school. But when the head elf places him at the workshop loading dock instead (due to his tremendous bulk), Randolph has to use his brains and work ethic to earn respect at his new job… and even save Christmas.
Imagine Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer, except...
Randolph has a healthy self-image
Randolph has a more positive outlet for his feelings
Randolph runs, but not away from his problems
Randolph is pro-active, refusing to let Santa’s workshop define him as a moose
