Stork And Christmas Tree From Chris Giarrusso's "G-Man" Series
The Baby Eating Stork and The Christmas Tree of Doom:
Two of my sons' favorite characters.
The tree appears in the first book, "Learning to Fly", where it becomes animate and violently escapes while being decorated by the unsuspecting family. The tree then breaks through the front of their house and steals the family car. It later returns while in Santa's employ to make amends, but parks the car on the roof, leading to further damage to the house.
The stork appears in the most recent G-Man book, "Coming Home" and does pretty much what is culturally expected of a stork... except he does threaten to eat the baby, and he has a mouth full of baby-eating teeth.
My sons find this to be side-splittingly funny.
