Jingle Bells, Rudolph Smells by Deano Yipadee and Paul Beavis.

September 12, 2016

rudolph-smellsJingle Bells, Rudolph Smells by Deano Yipadee and Paul Beavis. Pub. Scholastic, 2016.

This is a Wonkey Donkey type format with CD attached with Deano singing the song around which this picture book story for juniors revolves. You can play the CD to see how the song sounds then sing along with the words in the book.

It is a Xmas story, the first of the year and it will probably be popular. Once again Rudolph, he of red nose fame, comes to the rescue of Santa and his sleigh on Xmas Eve using  one of his bodily functions. The book calls it a trump, an oft used Northern England term. We call it a fart.The fart is not only smelly but it engenders heat and energy that is enough to save the day and of course it goes in Santa’s face, always guaranteed a laugh and smile when singing along.

Paul Beavis’s illustrations are excellent and he manages to give life to each reindeer. Rudolph of course will go down in history as he always does.

Not released until October 2016.
