YOUNG ADULT REVIEW: 3+: Father Christmas Comes up Trumps! - Nicholas Allan

Release Date: 24/10/13
Publisher:  Red Fox


Father Christmas is back, and this time he's had three helping of sprouts! As he tries to deliver the presents, his tummy rumbles, gurgles and groans, but Father Christmas knows he must keep it in - he doesn't want to wake anyone up! Will he come up Trumps?


OK, yes I’m childish, yes I find bodily functions funny and yes I get a huge laugh from a number of books that Nicholas Allan has brought to the fore. Its entertaining, has a good solid storyline and to be honest is an ideal book for Grandad’s to read to Grandsons on perhaps the most difficult night of the year to get them to sleep.

Add to this some wonderfully colourful illustrations and it’s a whole heap of fun that will perhaps have the younger members of the family looking suspiciously at the Sprouts on Christmas morning. Magic.
