The Night Before the Night Before Christmas

A brilliantly funny Christmas picture book from the bestselling author of Oi Frog!

'Twas the night before the night before Christmas (That's Christmas Eve Eve).

And Santa was wiping his brow on his sleeve.

Green elves were sewing, Blue elves were counting, Red elves were carving,

The pressure was mounting!

It's the day before Christmas Eve and Santa is ever so busy ... he's got presents to wrap, reindeer to wake and a sleigh to start. But has he forgotten something? And, more importantly, will he be ready in time?

Inspired by Clement C. Moore's classic festive poem, this hilarious, rhyming picture book is sure to have you ho ho ho-ing!
