What they say: ‘Twas the night before Christmas, When all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse… But I’ll tell you what was stirring… ‘Twas Santa’s BIG BOTTOM! A riotously funny Christmas-themed picture book from BAFTA-winning children’s TV presenters Sam & Mark. It’s time to deliver presents, but Santa’s tummy is feeling funny and he needs to let out parps along the way… But as a result, all the presents fall in the sea – will Santa’s trusty reindeer come to the rescue, after their brussels sprout snack? Comes with a suitably silly “Santa Stop Here” doorhanger!
What we say: “For a family who have a tradition of reading ‘T’was the night before Christmas’ on Christmas Eve this is a funny take on some elements of this story but with a ‘stinky’ twist which all kids will love! Not only is Santa tasked with getting all the presents to all the children in time, he has to do it with a rather full tummy of wind! As the gassy problem gets bigger and bigger, he lets out a huge big ‘trump’ sending his presents everywhere! After a few mishaps and getting all the presents back in the sack, he was in another perilous situation only to be saved by another huge ‘trump’ enough to send them around the world and deliver all the presents in time for Christmas!
A lovely set out book where each page has super animation and the story is written in the form of rhyme with an added bonus of a door hanger at the end of the book!”
The Stink Before Christmas by Mark and Sam is available from many good book stores and online from Amazon.
