There’s a Monster Under My Christmas Tree Who Farts

There’s a Monster Under My Christmas Tree Who Farts written by Tim Miller; illustrated by Matt Stanton (ABC Books)
HB RRP $24.99
ISBN 9780733332951

From the pungent creators of ‘There’s a Monster Under My Bed Who Farts’ comes this sequel, which sees decorating the Christmas tree a rather dangerous task.

No doubt to delight younger readers, Miller writes of the monster’s ‘bauble bombs’ and ‘bottom burps’ which not only are off-putting when trying to wrap presents, but have a terrible effect on the reindeers' carrots!

Miller and Stanton take us through other Christmas traditions where the monster causes havoc, ruining the Christmas Santa photo, scaring off the Christmas carollers and generally destroying everyone’s Christmas cheer.

Worried that Santa won’t visit or that he’ll be on Santa’s naughty list because of the monster’s windy habit, the boy in the story creeps downstairs only to see Santa and the monster under the Christmas tree together – both enjoying the release of simultaneous flatulence!

This title certainly sees Santa in a new light and will suit readers from 3 – 7.
