In Santa's Aussie Holiday Santa takes a much deserved break after his busy Christmas Eve delivering gifts. And what better place to do it than Down Under? Santa travels around Australia from Sydney to Perth in his singlet, boardies and thongs and is shown the sights (and how to surf) by his Aussie mate Croc. This is a fun story with appealing illustrations by Anna Walker.
Age recommendation: 4+
Each year Santa likes to have some fun,
a chance to get some rest and sun;
he spins his globe for inspiration
and finds a perfect destination . . .
This charming Christmas story answers the question, 'What does Santa do when he isn't getting ready for Christmas?' He takes a well-deserved holiday! Join Santa and his new Aussie mates as they travel around Australia, from the Great Barrier Reef to Rottnest Island.
