Father Christmas Needs A Wee by Nicholas Allan

Published by Red Fox, 2009.

Poor Father Christmas! It’s not bad enough that’s it’s Christmas Eve and the busiest day of the year for him. He also has another very serious problem that needs solving immediately.

“Father Christmas needs a wee. He's been drinking drinks since half past three.”

Feeling obliged to eat and drink all that’s been laid out for him in the houses he visits by thoughtful boys and girls, he’s sampled almost every drink imaginable.

And before long he really, really, needs a wee. So concerned is he with getting to the loo he even forgets to leave the presents behind. But Santa never leaves good children without presents. He dashes back in the nick of time, delivers all the pressies and flies at high speed through the night sky to avoid an embarassing accident ...

As he thankfully reaches his front door just in time, there's one tiny problem ...where is his key?

As well as being an hilariously cheeky picture book Santa Needs a Wee is also an ideal first counting book in rhyming text. It’s an excellent story to share with your little loved ones at Christmas… and will guarantee a much needed chill for frazzled parents as well!
