Product description

'Father Christmas needs a wee. He's been drinking drinks since half past three ...' At each different house that he visits Father Christmas drinks and eats all the goodies left out for him. Before long he really, really, really needs a wee. So much so that he even forgets to leave the presents behind. But he dashes back, delivers all the pressies and flies home at high speed to avoid an embarassing accident ...there's just one tiny problem ...he's lost his house key! Find out what happens and whether Father Christmas ever gets to relieve himself in this brilliant and fabulously funny counting book from the talented author/illustrator Nicholas Allan.

This is a funny book that helps with counting. I had bought for an older child, but more aimed at preschoolers.
