Written by Matilda Tristram & Tom Duxbury and illustrated by Nick Sharratt, Santa’s Beard is a completely hilarious book, complete with detachable fluffy beard, published in the UK by Walker.

It’s summer and Santa’s Beard is far too fluffy and warm on Santa’s sweaty face. “Don’t worry, Santa, I’ll just find a new face,” says his Beard, and off he flies straight on to the face of someone new! But neither the baby in the pram, the princess in her castle or the pirate at sea seem to want a beard. Will Santa’s Beard ever find someone who wants him? Help guide Santa’s Beard page by page on its adventure to find its rightful face!
