    Q: Why does Santa always come down the chimney?
    A: Because it soots him.

Everyone loves a good laugh at Christmas time. Christmas crackers, pulled with a crack and a bang, are traditionally packed with charms, funny hats and jokes for family and friends to share around the dinner table. The riddles which make up My Christmas Crackers are exactly the sort of silliness which may lurk in these bonbons.

This attractive hardback has thick strong pages which will endure many page turnings and are filled with bright, shiny illustrations. These are simply drawn and eye-catching in their boldness. My Christmas Crackers is a vivid, glossy joke book, just right for the young and young at heart this silly season. It would make a great Christmas gift.

    Q: What’s brown and hides in the kitchen at Christmas?
    A: Mince Spies.
