Description

Coretta Scott King Honor winner Brenda Woods introduces Zoe-an endearing eleven-year-old who's afraid her real life will never be as exciting as her imaginary one. Zoe Reindeer has a very big imagination, but in real life she considers herself "just Zoe"-not measuring up to her too-perfect older sister and her smarty-pants little brother. Truthfully, though, she'd rather just blend in with the plants at the family business, Doc Reindeer's Exotic Plant Wonderland. That is until a tall astronomer from Madagascar comes into the nursery looking for a Baobab tree, and starts a ball rolling that makes Zoe long for real adventures, not just imaginary ones. When her family is suddenly forced to relocate, they find themselves heading to a place reindeer have never gone before-and to Zoe, it feels like her first real adventure is finally beginning.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Sisi Aisha Johnson's fresh, youthful voice shares the optimism and enthusiasm of Zoe Reindeer. And optimism is necessary for 11-year-old Zoe as she navigates the role of middle sister, the vagaries of middle school, the loss of her best friend to a move, and her growing awareness of her parents' financial shaky situation. Much of the story is set in an exotic plant nursery. Johnson's modulation and tone are age appropriate for her portrayal of Zoe. Also filled with personality are Johnson's supporting characters--the superior-sounding older sister, the whining younger brother, the father weighed down with problems but also offering comfort to his daughter, and the upbeat best friend.
