Father Christmas Needs a Wee




A funny and festive counting book in brilliantly bouncy rhyme, with a fantastically festive story CD!

"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! Includes a brilliant story CD complete with music and sound effects.
