There Is A Monster Under My Christmas Tree Who Farts by Tim Miller and Matt Stanton is a hardcover book published by ABC Books. This is the sequel to There Is A Monster Under My bed Who Farts.
This book presents beautifully with it’s bright red cover and comical illustrations that continue throughout. Aimed at the 4-8 age group where the mention of farts and bums will send them into hysterical laughter this book hits the mark.
‘It wasn’t me! You have to tell Santa!’ This comment alone had my 7 year old laughing and yelling out “Sure it wasn’t”
There Is A Monster Under My Christmas Tree Who Farts starts off with a cute adorable green goggly eyed monster under the tree who is dropping bauble bombs. We soon visit Santa where his ‘gas clouds’ ruin the photo. He farts at the dining room table, on the roof whilst hanging the flashing lights and on the front verandah where he scares off the Christmas Carollers. Basically “HE”S RUINING CHRISTMAS!’
This is a great collaboration of quirky descriptive words and illustrations. How many ways can one describe a fart and still have you rolling your eyes and giggling. The illustrations set the scene with a cute little fart bomb gracing each picture.
There Is A Monster Under My Christmas Tree Who Farts by Tim Miller and Matt Stanton is a great little package to be shared by all.
