The Island of Misfit Toys

Illustrated by George Kambadais

Inspired by the beloved original television classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! Two days before Christmas, a terrible snowstorm arrives and Charlie-in-the-Box is lost at sea! King Moonracer quickly puts together a band of Misfit Toys to rescue him. Together with Yukon Cornelius and Bumble, the Abominable Snow Monster, the Misfits embark on their greatest adventure yet! But one question remains- will they say Charlie and return to the island in time for Santa to arrive? Or are the Misfits doomed to spend another Christmas without a little boy or girl to love them?
