Festive Delights: The Stink Before Christmas #StinkyStoryTime

From BAFTA-winning children's TV presenters Sam and Mark comes The Stink Before Christmas. Packed full of toilet humour, this new take on the traditional The Night Before Christmas tale may not be my ideal festive read but it has certainly got the Mini Reviewers giggling as we count down to Christmas.



'Twas the night before Christmas, 

When all through the house 

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse... 

But I'll tell you what was stirring... 

'Twas Santa's BIG BOTTOM! 


Santa's tummy is feeling unsettled as he sets off on Christmas Eve and after a major mishap with the presents, will a windy reindeer be able to save the day? Well that would be telling, but this parp-packed story certainly put a smile on all three Mini Reviewers' faces. They enjoyed making trumpy sound effects so much that our whoopee cushion sprung a leak! This is definitely a story you can have a lot of fun with and the comical illustrations by Tom Knight are fantastic.

Izzie (6) decided to have a go at reading the story aloud and, with just a little bit of help here and there, I think she did a pretty good job! Be warned it may not be 100% accurate and there is some very enthusiastic raspberry blowing!


If your kids enjoyed stories such as Santa Comes Up Trumps and Santa Needs a Wee then this book could certainly be the one for you this Christmas Eve!
