This is a hoot! Santa wearing thongs and shorts riding through the hot, Australia night in a Ute pulled by Kangaroos. "Merry Christmas to all and goodonya mates!"
Author: Yvonne Morrison
Illustrator: Kilmeny Niland
First Published: 2005

A fun play on the original with a good Australian flavour in both illustrations and narrative.

Not a lot one can say. It's a Christmas book. It's easy and fun to read. It has fairy bread and Santa's crack. It's set in Summer.

Ths is a great retelling of the classic Night Before Christmas with an Australian hot summer Christmas perspective. A fun read every year for both library storytime and Christmas storytime in our home.

Fun. Aussie icons popping up everywhere. Love the clever use of Aussie colloquialisms. My 5 month old baby loves the rhyming words and rhythm.

My friend from Australia sent this to me, and I think it's amazing! It's so funny!
I love the vocabulary from the book.
