Booky Advent Calendar 2017 Day 2: "I Went to See Santa" by Paul Howard (Bloomsbury Children's Books)

Booky Advent Calendar Day 2 and our choice of book for today is a fab take on that favourite old "Memory" game, this time with a lovely festive twist...
Paul Howard's awesome "I Went to See Santa" follows on from his fantastic "I Went to the Supermarket" book.

When a brother and sister go to see Santa, they compete to see who can be given the most bizarre and brilliant things.

As they try to remember all the Christmas gifts, everything escalates until ...


The story quickly becomes hilariously fun and chaotic, introducing an ever-increasing gang of festive folk all wanting to join in the fun.

Paul's illustrations are absolutely wonderful, and this is a read-aloud book that's bound to tickle little toes with laughter as they too try to remember all the things as the story reaches its crazy climax.

"I Went to See Santa" by Paul Howard is out now, published by Bloomsbury (kindly supplied for review)
