Fun new pop-up book based on the best-selling Aussie Night before Christmas!
Words: Yvonne Morrison

Lots of fun for the curious in this entertaining book. Find out what's behind the bushes, see the ute move through the sky, look at the style of  Santa's underpants! Inside the book are flaps, foldouts and bountiful surprises.

The mighty roos pull the ute in a sweeping arc across the front of the book in a clever optical illusion.

For this book I painted 47 separate new pieces of artwork. These were expertly combined with some of the illustrations from An Aussie Night Before Christmas by a masterful paper engineer to produce something magical.  It was a great experience!
