'Twas the Fight Before Christmas: A Parody
|Author:||Josie Lloyd; Emlyn Rees|
From the creators of the bestselling parodies We're Going on a Bar Hunt, The Very Hungover Caterpillar and The Teenager Who Came to Tea.
'Tis the season to be jolly. But as any modern family knows, 'tis also the season to be micro-managed by your in-laws, guzzle too many sherries, fight over the TV remote, and panic about your internet shopping not arriving on time.
But if you think that's bad, just wait until you meet the Jones family. Instead of this being their best Christmas ever, this might just be their last - especially if they don't all pull together to help their surprise guest in his hour of need.
An uproariously funny update of the traditional Christmas Eve classic - that all the family can enjoy.
Praise for The Very Hungover Caterpillar
'Hilarious and painfully accurate, The Very Hungover Caterpillar is liable to be one of those parodies that becomes more famous than the original' Independent
Praise for We're Going on a Bar Hunt
'. . . a parody that will draw a smile from any parent' Guardian
Praise for The Teenager Who Came to Tea
'A hilarious parody of a much-loved children's book and a perfect read for anyone who remembers the original, or has ever been a teenager or is the parent / grandparent of a teenager today' gransnet.com
