Alan Katz's 'Silly Dilly Christmas Songs' are sung to the tunes of holiday favorites like Let It Snow and Frosty the Snowman. This crazy collection begins with Santa Claus is All Over Town ('I see him at the market / I see him on the street').

There's the poor kid playing the Sugarplum Fairy in a school holiday play. Next comes Our Friendly Mailman who 'Works in ice and sleet and snow'. Toy Catalogs, At the Malls, Hanging Lights, and Twim the Twee are very funny. And then there's the title song, 'Where did they hide my presents? / That is what I'd like to know ... I looked high and low and low' (David Catrow adds to the fun here with a picture that shows presents hidden in a tree outside while a child searches inside the house).

This amusing collection of verse ends on Christmas morning with Batteries (or rather without batteries, don't forget 'em!) Sing along to the poems and chuckle over them together.
