The Book

What a treat this little rhyming book is for the Christmas season....whether to add to your own collection or give as a gift.  It will have you laughing all the way....with the potty. Yes, poor Santa overindulges on the drinks and the results are quite hysterical. This counting book will visually track his antics of sips and swallows and lead you to understand his predicament completely. The worst part?  Santa is so focused on his liquid entertainment that he forgets to leave the presents behind in everyone's house. Oh nooooo!  Yep, he bad! 

He hastily backtracks and quickly makes deliveries to those forgotten homes. Why is Santa in such a rush? Because he must get home to WEE! After his work is completed he hops into his sleigh and heads homeward for much needed relief. What occurs when he arrives at his destination is very comical. Will Santa make it in time? Will he have that satisfied look of pure contentment on his face after a visit to his toilet? No spoilers here but you will enjoy how his HUGE urge to WEE causes Santa to flee ever so quickly right back to his home at the North Pole!  

The illustrations are colourful and fun and Santa's expressions are priceless. This book will certainly appeal to younger kids and have them giggling away because they all love toilet humour. Many children have wondered how Santa manages so many visits in one night but how many have thought about how he copes with all the tasty food and beverages that are left out for him to enjoy? Can we expect a sequel about Santa and his other bodily functions? I hope so. Now that would be worth checking out wouldn't it?
