It’s the 22nd December and Christmas is almost here. I’d like to wish all my family, friends and blog followers an especially happy Christmas and New Year celebration. May 2019 bring you all good news, work you enjoy and relish, time with family with hugs and laughter. That’s what I’m looking forward to.
I’ve recently wrapped two books to give friends children and I’m sure they’ll love these.

Title: A Snugglepot and Cuddlepie Christmas
Author: May Gibbs
This is a really cute May Gibbs book that I’ve given as a Christmas gift, it’s a delightful tale. Gumnut Babies are so adorable and these Australian classic images are a joy to share. Both Snugglepot and Cuddlepie are counting down the days to Christmas. Cuddlepie is the worker and gets everything organised. Snugglepot, on the other hand, is the dreamer, wondering what treasures will be delivered for Christmas.
Title: An Aussie Night Before Christmas
Author: Yvonne Morrison
I love this twist in the tale story. Of course, it’s based on a timeless classic but with an Aussie Santa. He has to have sunburnt cheeks, a broad rim hat, red shorts and his deliveries are all loaded into a rusty ute pulled through the sky by kangaroos. The illustrations by Kilmeny Niland are delightful. This is another Christmas gift that I’m certain will be enjoyed.
