We adored the illustrations; they were beautiful and brought the story to life.

It was extremely well written, and the story flowed beautifully.

He thought it was hilarious when we saw his underwear, and he laughed a lot!

Santa leaves one Christmas Eve and forgets his suspenders, with a sustained rhyme and rhythm better than some this year and bright, cartoonish images. Fortunately, young Max is waiting for Santa and assists him in making some new suspenders. This new take on seeing Santa under the tree is fantastic. Colorful and entertaining for all ages.

I mean… if you’re looking for a holiday book that will have your little ones (especially the boys) howling with laughter…. Here you go. This one tells the hilarious tale of an unfortunate mishap for Santa, which traumatizes a little boy and his pup. The two are determined to help Santa out of this cringe worthy, embarrassing situation, and – yep – they get the job done. This one also demonstrates problem solving, has fantastic, catchy rhymes that the kids will love, and is so very much fun!

This was hilarious and adorable! I think my 6 year old and almost 3 year old will enjoy this on at Christmas. I really liked the illustrations and that it rhymed - makes an easy flow for read alouds with little ones. And my kiddos will find the whole concept of underpants showing absolutely hysterical. Will definitely be picking up a print copy of this one for the Christmas season this year,

In the flurry of preparing for delivering presents to the good girls and boys, Santa forgets to put on his suspenders. He then loses his pants in a fight with a dog, and Max helps him come up with a solution so he can keep his pants up and finish his work for the night.

This book made us all laugh out loud! The pictures are fun, the dog Cooper was a kid favorite, and we enjoyed seeing the ideas Max came up with to fix Santa’s problem.

This was a charming book that was a simple story that any child would find amusing. It was written very simply for children to read themselves. The illustrations were bright and colorful. They told the story just as clearly as the word. I would recommend this title as a gift that a child would likely not have already.

Thank you Netgalley for the wonderful ARC.

I love this book. Santa not forgetting his suspenders is a entertaining premise I never ever thought of. He's always wearing them, in every picture we see, a mishap waiting to happen.

I strongly believe kids will be very entertained by this story and it would be fun to think up other ways we replace the suspenders.

Simply put, I loved it. I cannot wait to read this to my stepson close to the holidays.

I am such a sucker for books with a fun rhythm, and the rhythm of these rhymes were quite fun to read aloud.

While being silly, it also shows that taking the time to help someone in need can be the greatest gift of all. (Aww!)

I look forward to seeking out this publisher’s other titles now.

Thank you so very much to Netgalley and Best Fairy Books for the opportunity to read and review this title.

I Saw Santa's Underpants is a cute rhyming story about what happens when Santa has a mishap at young Max's home.  This is a really short quick read but it shows some quick thinking and impressive problem solving skills by the main character to help Santa out once he sees his underpants.  

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review from NetGalley. I was not otherwise compensated.

When Santa accidentally leaves home without his suspenders, it's up to a clever little boy to devise a solution to save Santa from certain embarrassment.

What a delightful surprise! The rhyming text is well done, and I could almost hear Burl Ives reading this one aloud. The story is both fun, and funny. I expect all ages will enjoy this silly new Christmas classic.

This cheerful, laugh out loud rhyming Christmas tale, I Saw Santa’s Underpants, from Bobbie Hinman will have both adults and children chuckling gleefully at the antics poor Santa has to go through to keep his trousers in the right place.
It is that time of the year when Santa has to set about delivering the many presents to children all over the world. So he goes to his closet, pulls out the right suit with the lovely big shiny black belt and heads off to his sleigh.
The Elves have been hard a work stuffing all the stocking full. They load up the Sleigh and off Santa goes, dashing through the night skies. He arrives at Max’s house, where Max has been hopefully waiting to see if Santa does arrive.
It is while Santa is doing what he does best, putting all the presents under the tree, he realises he has left his braces behind and his pants simply will not stay up. Oh, my goodness, what to do. But clever Max come up with a solution that will stop everyone from knowing what coloured underpants Santa was wearing.
Bright, colourful illustrations add to the fun of the rhyming storyline. Little ones will be asking for I Saw Santa’s Underpants every night before bed as it is such a terrific book on several levels with much to be discovered in the illustrations and at the end of the story.
I Saw Santa’s Underpants: A really fun Christmas read for young and not so young.

I Saw Santa's Underpants is a lovely Christmas book to enjoy with all the family! The illustrations are absolutely amazing, with a clear intention linking to the text. The writing is amazingly written with rhyming words and so a hint of humour throughout!

It highlighted how problem solving can take time and multiple changes in order to be right, from the shower curtain to the bandana's to make suitable suspenders for Santa.

I would highly recommend this book to parents who have young children.

Was this review helpful?

This is a beautifully illustrated and perfectly poetic seasonal read that I loved sharing with my 4 year old. The appeal of this book,I feel, would span ages 3-8 at the very least. I suspect it is a book from across the pond, as the UK interpretation of 'his pants will fall down' is a little more risqué to us Brits!, (much to the delight and amusement of my young audience)!! This in no way detracts from the joy this book brings however!

All in all a lovely, and beautifully illustrated, Christmas read that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to add a little Christmas cheer at this time of year!

My thanks to Netgalley, author and publisher for the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an advance copy.

Santa's sleigh is dusted off. He opens up his closet and choses his wardrobe for his big whirlwind trip around the globe. The elves have successfully packed gazillions of toys to give to all the good little girls and boys and the reindeer are ready to soar off into the sky.

After waving good bye to her husband Mrs. Claus returns inside and discovers that her husband has forgotten to take his suspenders. Oh my! Without them his pants will surely fall down.

Down below Max and his dog Cooper are fixing Santa a yummy treat when suddenly Santa appears and starts putting presents under the tree. That's when an embarrassing mishap happens... Santa's pants do start to fall down. Cooper rushes over and starts tugging at Santa's pant leg pulling his pants down even further exposing his UNDERWEAR!

How will Santa recover and get on with his important mission of delivering all those gifts around the world before morning with his underwear showing? Luckily it's Max to the rescue to help Santa out of his dilemma. With imagination and his problem solving skills Max becomes a superhero and successfully helps Santa out. I wonder how he does that?

This delightful rhyming book will have kids giggling and the illustrations are fantastic. This would be a terrific read aloud and addition to a classroom and school library. I love "I Saw Santa's Underpants" and I highly, highly recommend it. Miracles do happen at Christmas time... just ask Santa! I hope Max was rewarded for his ingenuity and prowess. He certainly deserves it.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review.

This was a fun little rhyming story that had almost a Night Before Christmas vibe to it for me. I think most kids imagine catching Santa in the act, but this particular child gets to see way more than he bargained for. And it was nice that his immediate instinct was to help Santa out.

The illustrations had a timeless, classic feel to them, but were still plenty bright and colorful to draw the attention of young eyes. And I wouldn't have hated reading this book to my children a few times at least.

Overall I give this 4.2 out of 5 stars.

This is a really funny children's Christmas book, which my daughter and I loved.

The story is about Santa, who forgets to wear a part of his outfit, which leads to a bit of a disaster for him, although it is funny for us to see. Luckily, he meets a little boy who helps him with what he needs.

The book has beautiful, vibrant and colourful graphics, and easy to read text, which we really enjoyed.

I highly recommend this awesome book. It is fantastic and it would make a great gift for any child.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a copy of this book.

This was really fun. This probably isn’t a book that will be around in 20 years, but you should go check it out and explore it while it’s around. Santa left for Christmas without his suspenders and at the first house his pants will not stay up! The little boy not only sees his underpants, but helps come up with a solution so Santa can finish the night and make sure all the good little boys and girls get their toys.

Santa forgets his suspenders and wouldn't you know, at the first house he visits, his pants fall down.

There were so many laughs in this little story. The artwork captures the spirit of Christmas so well and Santa even has rosy cheeks. This is a book that we'd love to read each Christmas, if only to giggle about Santa's underpants.
