SUMMARY: "What if Santa's lips get chapped?" Stinky Face asks. "What if the sack of toys starts to rip?"
As always, Mama lovingly addresses each and every one of her child's concerns. Of course, Stinky Face leaves Santa lip balm and duct tape . . . just in case.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations are colorful and fun, but not as rich and eye catching for children as the first book. Many of the pages are very busy with unnecessary background junk.

THE GOOD: Stinky Face, as lovingly called by his/her (could be a boy or a girl as illustrated) mother is up to the same tricks with question after question. But this time the questions are about what might happen on Christmas Eve. Mother has a creative answer for everything.
THE NOT AS GOOD: First, I must say that, after reading some reviews, I went back and read the first Stinky face book before reading this one again. I am glad I did. Otherwise I would have NO idea where the title "Stinky Face" comes from. If you are a Stinky Face fan, this book may disappoint you as it doesn't live up to the first book.

But if you've never read Stinky Face before, it is simply a cute book about a child who has a lot of "What if" questions and the mother who lovingly and creatively answers them all. 4 stars instead of 3 for the creativity and fun.
