Now, what does an Aussie Santa do when Christmas comes around again but it is too hot to wear the usual clobber?

Why, he pulls on his red shorts and his colourful shirt, chucks the prezzies in the back of his trusty, rusty ute, tells his kelpie to keep guard, then gets goin' like a blue streak aided by eight true blue roos.
This is a rollicking Australian version of the traditional tale of 'The Night before Christmas'.

It is published by Scholastic Australia and is available in all good book stores.
