Stinkbomb & Ketchup-Face and the Great Kerfuffle Christmas Kidnap

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Review

On the island of Great Kerfuffle, a group of dastardly badgers plot their escape from prison. Badly disguised as presents, they trick Father Christmas into transporting them up the chimney, and then promptly kidnap him and hijack his sleigh.

When Stinkbomb and his little sister Ketchup-Face wake up to find their stockings are unfilled, they embark on a madcap adventure to solve the mystery of the missing Santa and save Christmas.

One of a series of books about the siblings' comical escapades, this wacky story hurtles along at a furious pace, with laugh-out-loud moments on every page. The festive story features wonderfully-colourful characters, including: Miss Butterworth, the ninja librarian; King Toothbrush Weasel, who also doubles as the Royal Palace's night porter; and the Little Shopping Trolley who celebrates TrolleyHoliday rather than Christmas. Erratically-numbered chapters, fabulously funny line drawings and an uproarious plot make this highly entertaining tale ideal for confident young readers and provides plenty of laughs for grown-ups too!
