Santa is on his way Down Under and a menagerie of Aussie animals are on hand to prepare. There's snakes on skis, sharks a-surfing, emus laying, dingoes dancing - and of course - a kookaburra in a gum tree.
Michael Salmon's vivid, iconic illustrations perfectly typify this comic take on a classic festive song - and at the end of the book, kids will enjoy several added scenes - koalas caroling, Santa doing the Christmas Eve gift drop, Christmas Day on the beach (where else?) and the great Boxing Day snooze.
A perfect stocking stuffer for Aussie kids - and friends overseas.
