Review quote

"A cheeky seasonal treat and sequel to the hugely popular Father Christmas Needs a Wee!" * The Bookseller * "Told through rhyming couplets, children will love to join in with this one and the onomatopoeic words will encourage enthusiastic interaction... Be prepared for squeals of glee and cheeky laughter from start to finish." * Early Years Educator * "A lively and fun story to get children into the Christmas spirit and with its rhyming text, rooftop spreads and the delight of a 'naughty word', it makes a great read-aloud" * ReadingZone website * "Written with great descriptive text ... Any young child is going to find this book thoroughly entertaining" * Over 40 and a Mum to One blog * "This is laugh out loud stuff, just right for letting off steam after that magnificent Christmas dinner (with sprouts, of course), but children and parents will be happy to return to this lovely book any time of the year." * Books Monthly *
