A brilliantly funny Christmas picture book from the bestselling author of Oi Frog!

'Twas the night before the night before Christmas (That's Christmas Eve Eve).
And Santa was wiping his brow on his sleeve.
Green elves were sewing, Blue elves were counting, Red elves were carving,
The pressure was mounting! It's the day before Christmas Eve and Santa is ever so busy ... he's got presents to wrap, reindeer to wake and a sleigh to start. But has he forgotten something? And, more importantly, will he be ready in time? Inspired by Clement C. Moore's classic festive poem, this hilarious, rhyming picture book is sure to have you ho ho ho- ing!

We had lots of fun reading this rhyming, festive tale together. The story follows Santa and his elves as they are busy preparing for Christmas Eve and it has a great Christmassy feel to it. Leo loved the glittery cover and beautifully detailed illustrations. There is a mix of old and new, like tin-plated train sets and computer games, which makes it really enjoyable for the whole family to read.

This book is so much fun with a modern twist.  My Grandson was born on Christmas Eve so this story added even more magic.  It is beautifully illustrated and flows well with humour.

We were very excited to win this book on a Toppsta giveaway – Thank you Toppsta!  I read this with my 5 year old and we enjoyed the book, particularly the atmospheric illustrations, which are beautiful, detailed and jam-packed with action. There were many discussion points within the text and the activity in the illustrations.  At the end we were left trying to imagine Santa if he had listened to Mrs Claus!  I asked my 5 year old his rating out of 5, he gave it a 10, so this was a hit and I’m sure we will read it a good few times this Christmas!

This is such a beautifully illustrated book. We really enjoyed reading this story and enjoyed the rhyming throughout. I did expect it to be funnier as we are big fans of Kes Grey books and find the oi! range hilarious. It was still enjoyable and definitely one to add to your Christmas collection to get into the Christmas spirit!
