Picture book review : Father Christmas Comes Up Trumps! - Nicholas Allan


Nicholas Allan is a comedy genius as far as we're concerned here at The Madhouse. We've already giggled helplessly reading several of his previous books (over and over again) - you may remember our reviews for Cinderella's Bum, Picasso's Trousers, The Giant's Loo Roll and The Queen's Knickers.

Nothing is sacred in the wonderfully wacky world of Nicholas Allan and this time, he pokes his irreverent form of very slightly rude fun at the man of the moment, Father Christmas. (For the second time in fact - he has already published Father Christmas Needs a Wee!) This time, the rather pressing call of nature is of a different form - having greedily helped himself to three servings of Brussels sprouts, his tummy starts gurgling and he needs a good fart !

As you can imagine, this had the Madhouse Mini-testers dissolving into hilarity (and I must admit, I couldn't help laughing too !). We'll be reading this non-stop while everybody is still feeling festive, then bringing it out again next year in the run up to Christmas for sure.
