Merry Christmas, Stinky Face

Merry Christmas, Stinky Face

by Lisa McCourt Illustrated by Cyd Moore

"What if Santa's lips get chapped?" Stinky Face asks. "What if the sack of toys starts to rip?"

As always, Mama lovingly addresses each and every one of her child's concerns. Stinky Face leaves Santa lip balm and duct tape...just in case. This tender Christmas tale is just right for sharing with the smallest reader.
