An Aussie Night Before Christmas

LOVE IT!!!  This is hilarious!  As an expat getting used to having Christmas Aussie style, in the middle of the summer, this one was perfect ....

This is one to keep on your bookshelf and ready to bring out in December (and July for' Christmas in July' fans!)

A twist on the classic 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, Yvonne Morrison sticks to the original rhyming pattern but inserts some great Aussie lingo to bring it bang up to date with a great twist of humour.

"'But a rusty old ute

pulled by eight mighty 'roos."

We challenge you not to be tempted to grin as you read this through in the run up to Christmas - Santa in his 'red stubby shorts', kids dreaming of pavlova and roos named 'Shazza and Shane.'  Lovely, light-hearted festive fun - brilliant!

A Christmas Tale that doesn't fail

This is a wonderful book; it is great for Aussies to be able to relate to the story, as alot of Christmas based books have snow, whereas this one talks about a summer Christmas. My kids thoroughly enjoy this book (I do too) and I think it would make agreat stocking stuffer.

A Christmas Favourite

This is an annual Christmas favourite in our household. I love Australian versions of traditional Christmas carols and tales, and this one is very cleverly done. Good for a giggle and the type of Christmas Aussie kids can relate to. I especially love the names of the roos pulling the sleigh.

Fun and very readable book

My kids (aged 5 and 6) have liked this for a couple of years now. It's a great Christmas book for an expat to Australia - we were given it as a present by an Australian friend. So a great Christmas gift idea! Fun, clever and great illustrations

A perfectly Aussie christmas

This book is a firm favourite in our house all year round, (yes I am a christmas freak). Such a funny and clever book appealing to mums and dads as well as kidlets. We especially love the mum and dad in their nightie and shorts watching TV sports and the kangaroos instead of reindeer! Perfectly aussie with a great sense of humour.
