Tracking Down an Elusive Santa Book ... please help!!

Fantastic site!

I am trying to source a Christmas picture book that was my brother's favourite Santa book when we were kids.

I don't remember the author, or the title ... so I came here. 8)

All I know is that the author is a very popular Christmas picture book author (can't find his books locally - he's quite unique, and may illustrate also - his Santa's were very comic/cartoonish), and that this particular book featured Santa: visiting a camping ground/sitting on a toilet.

It was quite humorous - my kid brother thought it was hilarious - and harmless.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?
