Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face and the Great Kerfuffle Christmas Kidnap

Written by John Dougherty

Illustrated by David Tazzyman

Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face and the Great Kerfuffle Christmas Kidnap Synopsis

More fun than your average elf! The perfect book to get you in the mood for all the madness of Christmas! Christmas! A time of peace and goodwill . . . and presents! But something's not right in Great Kerfuffle - instead of peace there's mayhem, and instead of goodwill there's evil and wickedness. And instead of presents, there's . . . NO PRESENTS! Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face have been extra good this year so they know Father Christmas wouldn't forget them. Something must have happened to him - and now it's up to them to save Christmas (or at least find their presents!). The Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face books are hugely popular and this book will appeal to existing fans and is also an ideal present for newcomers. Written by hilarious author, John Dougherty, and illustrated by the talented David Tazzyman (illustrator of the Mr Gum books), this dream team has created a crazy world inhabited by unforgettable characters that children (and their parents!) love.
