When school resumes after the winter break, Quincy's class discovers they have an unusual new transfer student named Cupid. Ridiculously cute and fr

Annie (Putt) It ended with a big cliffhanger/opening for a second, but I haven't seen or heard that she's making another.

Reindeer Boy is the perfect romantic Christmassy book.

It’s impossible not to be familiar with Cassandra Jean’s work, if you’re a die-hard fan of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments. Her artwork is featured in both The Bane Chronicles and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. She also illustrated Shadowhunter tarot cards, among other things.

She has quite an original style. I would recognize her work anywhere. In fact, just by looking at the cover of this book, I knew immediately that Cassandr

100% recommend this! The art is gorgeous as all Cassandra Jean's art is. The story was so cute and fun for Christmas time. I will reread it over and over

5 Stars!

Reindeer Boy was an adorable story that was perfect to read on Christmas Eve. This is my first book by Cassandra Jean and I loved the story from start to finish! It was really cute and a funny story. I definitely caught myself laughing and had a smile on my face the entire time.

We follow the story of Quincy, a teenage girl who has a recurring dream of a boy with antlers each Christmas Eve. When she returns to school from Christmas break, she meets a boy "wearing" realistic - very realis

I don't even know how to express what I'm feeling right now.
I'm just so grateful, happy, impressed, overwhelmed, a mix of all of these... I don't have a precise word.
I wish I could tell you what the story is about, but it wouldn't be fair to you, because you deserve to discover the story like I did and fall in love with all the characters.
And the art ... Cassandra Jean is my favourite artist, so you can easily imagine how excited I was when I heard about Reindeer Boy, but what I imagined wasn't

This was so adorable. I wish it was a series. I love the Christmas reindeer theme. I wasn't expecting that. So precious.

I have always wanted a Christmas themed Graphic Novel, this was everything and more! So cute, and I'm obsessed with Reindeer anyway. I need more of these! Highly reccomend.

I'm still baffled that this was stocked in stores early and that I was able to get this two days before release date. The publishing and bookselling world is magical. Thanks to Sarah Prineas for this wonderful early Christmas present!

I've been looking forward to this ever since it was announced back in the summer, but I also adore Jean's art and knew that another graphic novel filled with it was going to be a treat. After all, who doesn't want to stare at humans with antlers all day? It's the be

What a cute start to this story. I'm pretty sure she isnt done yet, mostly because most of her ships are always gay/lesbian and has been developing these characters for years. But it was sweet and cute, and I absolutely love her drawings!

Super fun concept with great humor and lovely art! That said, this felt like it's only Act I of a much larger story. It was all set up. I hope more volumes are planned! 4/5 stars.

I read this after Christmas instead of during but it was cute enough for me that it didn't really matter.

I really enjoyed this short comic! The art was beautiful, the concept was interesting, and overall it was a really fun read!

Minus one star because the end felt unfinished and as far as I can tell there isn't anymore volumes so I will definitely have to live with some unanswered questions.

Recommended for those who like Christmas, cute love stories, and reindeer!

“But I’d like to know why it’s happening.”
“So… Kris grants each one of us one Christmas wish. Someone must have made you their wish.”

Adorable and sweet, it’s just what I wanted to read for the Christmas season. Also, how weird is it that every single reindeer can pretty much be described as good-looking and sexy?

“That was you, wasn’t it?”
“You remember me. ♥”

My first book of the 2018, of course it had to be this one.

I spotted this book first a few months ago, and then wanted to wait to see if I would get it from Santa, which I did! When I flipped through the book a few months ago I was instantly in love. Not only because of the amazing Cassandra Jean art, but also because the idea of reindeer being human and falling in love with humans made my heart skip.

Such a sweet story!

One of the sweetest most beautiful graphic novels for the holidays! Really recommend since the artist is amazing too and her art nice.

To sum this all up in one GIF:


Super cute and adorable, with lovely art to boot. If this does well, and Jean decides to add more volumes, I'm definitely on board.

Ahhh!!! My most anticipated release of 2016 lived up to my expectations (except the end but I think that's just because I want more) This is just so adorable and I love Cassandra Jean's artwork. I've been following Jean's tumblr for a while and watching all these drawings of these characters and I've been so excited to read it!!

I love Comet so much and I would love to see more of Prancer, Vixen, and Donder since they were in it for like two pages (Jean says if the book does well, there'll proba

Cute little graphic novel about Quincy, who dreams of a boy with antlers visiting her each christmas, who has weird stumps forming on her forehead, and who has no idea how to deal with the new guy at school ...who has antlers.

Very light read that's a lot of fun, has great character design and in the artist's lovely style, but the story is very vague. Barely any of the "hows" and "whys" are answered, which fits the mood but makes it a bit unmemorably and lacking engagement. Still enjoyed

Am I reading this because it's been on my shelf since last year - yes. Am I also doing it to cheaply clock in my reading challenge - heck yeah.

This was a great story with a gorgeous art style and likable characters. I read through it really quickly because I didn't want to put it down. It had a cute premise and a few parts of it really cracked me up. The only downside was that it was over too fast. I wish there was more, because I feel there's a lot more that could be explored with this idea.
