Reading Snowy’s Christmas made me realise that Christmas is not all that far away. And how refreshing it was to be welcomed into the world of an Australian Christmas….where there is no snow, only snowy white kangaroos.
In Snowy’s Christmas; Snowy, a white kangaroo struggles to fit in with the rugged red members of his species. Then on Christmas day, a visit from a mysterious stranger turns his world around.
Snowy’s Christmas is not just about Christmas, but about finding your place in the world.
It’s a truly Australian Christmas story with Aussie animals and landscapes. The tale is beautifully told by Sally Murphy, and David Murphy’s bright, funny illustrations give the book extra bounce.
Snowy’s Christmas is definitely one for the Christmas stocking.
