Giveaway: Sam and Mark The Stink Before Christmas Book


Day 12 of my Christmas Shopping Giveaways and I have a copy of the book Sam and Mark The Stink Before Christmas for you to try to win!


Sam and Mark's The Stink Before Christmas


The book was written by Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes BAFTA award winning Children’s TV presenters and illustrated by the very talented Tom Knight.


The Stink Before Christmas is obviously a Christmas book but, it certainly isn’t a traditional one. It is actually really funny and full of toilet humour that will appeal to younger children and Tweens alike. Both my Tween and Teenager were laughing as we looked at it together. You can see exactly what I mean by toilet humour below in the actual literal sense ha!

“…But I’ll tell you what was stirring: ’twas Santa’s big bottom! He was stuck on the toilet. He’d eaten something rotten.”


Poor Santa! Unfortunately despite his poorly tummy Mrs Claus sends him off with cabbage and baked beans (his favourite) to eat. I won’t tell you the whole story and ruin it for anyone but, Santa’s wind does cause all of the presents to disappear.


I have to confess to reading the book before I read it with the boys and receiving odd looks from Simon, because I was laughing at a children’s book so much! I’m not sure what that says about my maturity level but, the good news is unlike some books that your children demand you read to them when they’ve already had three stories before bed, this one won’t be torture. Hopefully you’ll actually enjoy it!


At the back of the book, they have even given you a Santa Please Stop Here door hanger to cut out and keep. On the front it’s very sweet looking but, turn it over and it says:


“Watch out! There’s a Stink About!”


Santa please stop sign
