A BUSH CHRISTMAS
A Bush Christmas by C J Dennis
Illustrated by Dee Huxley
Written in 1931 this edition 2008
This is a beautiful traditional children's story, depicting Christmas in the Australian bush. The illustrator has captured the image of the real Australian bush in mid summer.
"Your fault says Dad. Plum pudding. On a day like this "
The age old dispute about the Christmas menu .
"The sun burns hotly thro the gums,
The chirping of the locuts comes
Across the paddocks , parched and grey"
Wonderful descriptions of the Australian bush.
