Twas the night before Christmas; there wasn't a sound
Not a possum was stirring; no one was around
We'd left on the table some tucker and beer
Hoping that Santa Claus soon would be here.

Christmas in the middle of an Australian summer means Santa has to find new ways to deliver his presents.

The obvious solutions are to don a sunhat, shorts and a pair of thongs, not to mention ditching the sleigh and reindeer in favour of some roos and a Ute.

Every line of this traditional verse has been remodeled, replete with Aussie references. The gentle illustrations are packed with familiar icons cleverly woven into the visual narrative to recreate the warm, comforting, family atmosphere that Christmas is all about.



I bought it because I had read someone else's copy and thought it appropriate for my household. It is nice to get an Australian perspective on Christmas too not just an English/ European or American
