Format: Hardcover
Hilarious rhyming book. Just the thing for a few Christmas giggles. The animals get their stockings mixed up and Santa fills them with the wrong gifts. What's a stork, hippo, lion, fish, elephant snake, fox and bug to do? It all goes well in the end.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very cute story, with lovely artwork, which entertained its 3 year-old listener very much. I suspect that as he ages, his attention will be even more captured by the switcheroo depicted in the fanciful and clear drawings.
