LoveReading View on Nuddy Ned's Christmas

It’s Carry on Father Christmas in this new picture book! Nuddy Ned loves nothing more than running around in the all-together, even when it’s minus three and snowing! Tearing off his jim-jams on Christmas Eve he hurtles out of the house, pursued by his horrified parents. A mad streak around town follows, and only a series of cleverly placed flaps preserves his modesty. His naked enthusiasm is catching and a final image shows Santa himself throwing off his clothes before riding off in his sled, bare bottom just concealed by a teddy bear and some presents! Children will love the cheekiness (sorry) of this picture book story, and the rhyming text will have everyone laughing.  ~ Andrea Reece


Nuddy Ned's Christmas Synopsis

Santa's sleigh was on its way just leaving Lanzarote. Goodness Gracious, Blitzen cried. Did I just see a botty? It's Christmas Eve, and minus three, but Ned doesn't care. While other people are dressed in duffle coats and parkas, Ned is running riot, and he's completely starkers! And there is a very special person Ned just can't wait to meet! A laugh-out-loud riotous romp with an energetic rhyming text and strategically placed flaps to protect Ned's modesty. From the author of Oi Frog and the illustrator of The Dinosaur That Pooped series.
