From Samantha Berger and illustrator Manny Galán, creators of The Great Big Poop Party, comes a hilarious holiday picture book that follows Santa Claus as he reluctantly accepts that Christmas could use a little poop.

It's December, and you know what that means: Christmas is coming! But this year, the North Pole is in for a surprise. Never in the history of this most joyous of holidays has poop been so popular . . . and children from all over have poop-ified their wish lists.

When the news reaches Santa Claus, he declares Christmas has officially gone down the toilet! But with a bit of convincing—and a strategically placed whoopie cushion—from Mrs. Claus and the rest of the North Pole crew, maybe Santa will understand that Christmas is a time for peace, joy, and love, but also for laughter.

The Very Merry Poop Christmas is the pitch-perfect, potty-humor-filled follow-up to kid favorite The Great Big Poop Party, just in time for the holidays!
