Inspired by the theme of anti-bullying, the story begins with Rudolf leaving the North Pole for the Cayman Islands after being bullied by the other reindeers. As Santa searches for him, Rudolf discovers the wonders of the Cayman Islands.

Paul Schreiner said, “We wanted to write a fun story about the Cayman Islands for children this holiday, but something with a pertinent message. Bullying is a terrible affliction to any one, in any country, even to reindeers, so it’s important to highlight the importance of standing up to bullies.”

The profits from the books sales are being donated to Stand Up 2 Bullying, a non-profit organization, which was originally founded in Canada, when a little boy was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. The organisation in Cayman educates the public on bullying and how to prevent and stop it.

Miriam Foster, the program coordinator of the Family Resource Centre, spearheads the Take a Stand Against Bullying campaign said, “We all have a responsibility to prevent bullying. Anyone can be a bully or be bullied, whether adults or children, and it is our social responsibility to make people aware that this is not acceptable. We are incredibly grateful for the generous donation by the Schreiner family, it’s a wonderful Christmas gift to our organisation.”

Schreiner approached local marketing company, Tower, for assistance with promoting the book. Lynne Byles said ‘We loved the book and thought it was a great opportunity to support the local Talk a Stand Against Bullying campaign. Tower has been inspired by the book’s message and is proud to be a sponsor.”

The book is currently on sale at AL Thompson’s and Books & Books, and will be sold at the Christmas Arts Market at Camana Bay this coming Saturday 12th December. The book not only makes a great gift for young children, but benefits a worthy cause, teaches children the importance of anti-bullying and supports local talent.
