This hilarious picture book is the perfect festive treat! After visiting earth one Christmas day, an alien decides to recreate the festivities on his home planet. Zobble takes notes and collects everything he will need. However, as the spaceship spins through the sky on his way home his notes get muddled up. Zobble tries to remember what goes with what but – of course – gets everything mixed up. Cue socks and pants stuffed with holly, a donkey in a fairy costume, and a bemused Santa in pursuit of his missing reindeer.
