We all remember when Froggy got dressed and realized he had forgotten to put on his underwear.  Reading this one aloud at story time guarantees a lot of giggles.

This time Santa Claus has a problem too.  It's Christmas Eve and the North Pole is one busy place with everyone working hard to get all the presents ready to be delivered around the world.  Finally Santa is ready to head out to the sleigh to get the reindeer moving.  Uh oh.  Santa's got to go... to the potty that is.. yes Santa dressed in his long johns and his big red coat  is going to have to go back and take care of some important business.

This one has been test driven by a two-year old I know and that little guy thinks this book is hilarious fun.  Highly recommended.
