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!
