The Lovereading4Kids comment

Picture books don’t come much sillier than this, or much more pleasing to the young: wherever Father Christmas goes, he hears a parp – E-I-E-I-O. Whether it’s from a robin (here a pffrrp there a pffrrp), from an elf (with a pwp pwp here and pwp pwp there) or from the carol singers (everywhere a bwwb bwwb), you’ll have to join in and there are invaluable detailed instruction on how to make the different parp sounds. The pictures will make everyone laugh too and this is just lots of fun. One for everyone to sing along with while preparing the sprouts. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Father Christmas Heard a Parp by Olaf Falafel

The side-splitting festive follow-up to Old MacDonald Heard a Parp, from hilarious picture book superstar, Olaf Falafel. Father Christmas heard a parp ...E-I-E-I-O! Father Christmas is getting ready to deliver the presents - but he keeps getting distracted by some VERY rude noises! Who keeps PARPING?! Could such a big noise actually be coming from someone rather small...? More windy fun is in store in this brilliant picture book by the sensational Olaf Falafel.

Featuring helpful do-it-yourself instructions so you can parp along to your heart's content and drive your family nuts during the holidays, it's set to be the ultimate stocking filler for Christmas 2017!

Fans of The Dinosaur That Pooped series will love this tongue-in-cheek Christmas tale. Perfect for ages 4 and up.

About the Author

Olaf Falafel

Olaf Falafel is a surrealist comedian and illustrator who, this year, performed his debut stand up show, ‘Olaf Falafel and The Cheese of Truth’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to critical acclaim. As well as finding comedic success onstage, Falafel has also enjoyed huge online fame with his short viral videos. These absurdist movies include a croissant-coiffured talking Donald Trump puppet, slices of truth telling cheese being thrown onto newspapers and the Bee Gees hiding in his beard.

The comedy website Chortle affectionately described Falafel as ‘an idiot’ and when he doesn’t have a microphone in his hand you’ll probably find him with a pencil and pad trying to draw something equally idiotic.

A unique mixture of one-liners and Scandinavian-tinged stories has earned Olaf the purely fictitious title of 'Sweden's eighth funniest comedian'. His recent exploits include coming second in the 2014 Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, beating the Comedy Store's infamous Gong Show (twice just to show off!) being crowned the 2013 Golden Jester and also being named Last Minute Comedy Club's New Act of 2013. Old Macdonald Heard a Parp is Olaf's very first picture book and was discovered via Twitter.
