John Williamson’s Christmas in Australia
32pp., pbk., RRP $A14.99
Christmas in Australia – time for families to get together and of, course, the perfect family photo for posterity. But getting everyone together at the same time is not as easy as it sounds. And given the separations of the last few Christmases and the reunions taking place for many this year. family photographs will be high on the agenda so both the book and the song will echo in the minds of many.
This is an hilarious, rollicking tune, probably known to every Australian school student, brought to life in picture book format through the talents of Mitch Vane. As families gather together as the big day draws closer, no doubt its scenarios will be played out in real life in many backyards and children will be heard singing the song.
A must-have in any Christmas collection and for sending overseas to those who want to know about a summer Christmas as well.
