DescriptionIn this book and CD edition of "Father Christmas Needs A Wee", Bernard Cribbins brings to life the excruciating dilemma that Santa faces every Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve every child leaves out a drink and a snack for Father Christmas. Before long he really, really needs a wee but what can he do about it? There's a long time to wait before he can get home and when he finally does he's lost his house key! A hilarious take on a dilemma that every toddler will identify with, this picture book now includes a CD complete with music and sound effects.

Poorly written book
This book is one of the most poorly written children's books I've ever read. I bought it to use with my class of 5 year olds and also to read to my son in the build-up to Christmas. I will not be keeping it to use next year. The concept is that Fther Christmas needs a wee as he's been drinking drinks since half past three (who's ever heard of Father Christmas starting deliveries during the day?). At house number one he has hot chocolate but then at house number two he has two plates of stew. Since when is stew a drink? Just because stew rhymes with two doesn't mean it makes sense. He has tea at three of the houses (3, 4 and 10) which doesn't seem very creative. At house number 7, he has milk but no word is used to express the plural concept of this uncountable noun - i.e. the sentence is:
At number 7 milk, SEVEN, pure heaven
...when it should read...
At number 7 milk, SEVEN glasses, pure heaven.
There were a lot of other things about the book that I didn't like on top of these obvious problems. The book might be cheap, but it's not worth buying at all of. There are plenty of other much better Christmas books out there to spend your money on instead. by Melanie Crase
