In this completely hilarious novelty book illustrated in Nick Sharratt's bold and distinctive style, help guide Santa's Beard page by page on its adventure to find its rightful face.


Santa's Beard by Matilda Tristram, Tom Duxbury

It's summer and Santa's Beard is far too fluffy and warm on Santa's sweaty face. Don't worry, Santa, I'll just find a new face, says his Beard, and off he flies straight on to...the face of someone new! But neither the baby in the pram, the princess in her castle or the pirate at sea seem to want a beard. Will Santa's Beard ever find someone who wants him?

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
