5+: Father Christmas Needs a Wee - Nicolas Allan (Audio read by Bernard Cribbins)

Release Date: 29/09/10


'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.


A fun full colour book that has a wonderful story that will make Christmas Eve magical. Whilst the artwork on its own is spectacular when you add to the mix that the story is told on CD by Bernard Cribbins (for those old enough the voice of the Wombles, those of the younger persuasion the Granddad of Donna Noble in Dr Who) and you know that this title will have multiple telling’s within.

All in a great book and one that left me wondering what Nicolas will come up with next.
