A is for Aliens Love Panta Claus
Aliens Love Panta Claus is still one of our favourite Christmas stories and I have had lots of fun reading the simple rhyming text to non native English speakers who find Ben Cort’s colourful and humorous illustrations extremely funny. Even the birds and animals and the snowman are wearing underpants, the reindeer’s underpants are fluorescent and glow in the dark!
The Story: On Christmas Eve the aliens pack their spaceship with underpants and fly off to help Santa with his preparations. Disaster strikes when Santa’s sleigh breaks down so the aliens swap Santa’s sack for a pair of bloomers, give Santa a lift in their spaceship, help him to deliver all the presents and even add a few extra panty decorations to everybody’s Christmas trees.
One Christmas we packed underpants in each of our daughter’s presents, just like the aliens do in the story!
