Santa’s Secret from Mike Dumbleton is a humorous rhyming tale, with a delicious Aussie twist.
Christmas Eve is, of course, a busy time for Father Christmas. After a big, replenishing sleep on Christmas Day it really is time to let loose and relax. But did you know what Santa really gets up to in order to re charge those batteries? Picture a beach shack, a bright red wet suit … and the perfect surf conditions! Oh yes!
Told in rhyming couplets and with a gentle rhythm, Santa’s Secret is a great one to read out loud. Tom Jellett’s (My Dad Thinks He’s Funny) illustrations are vibrant and fun – a perfect match!
A lovely ending, encompassing seasonal Christmas cheer, leaves you with a lovely,tingly feeling … and with a rhyming couplet gracing each page, this is perfect for younger readers and listeners.
