AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It’s Christmas in the bush and there’s not a sign of snow in sight. The kitchen has heated up nicely with enough roasted turkey and plum pudding to help diners burst at the seams.

'It’s Christmas in the bush and the sun burns hotly through the gums. Down the road old Rogan comes for a bite of tucker and a beer. Mum’s in the kitchen cooking up a turkey and plum pudding. C.J. Dennis’s A Bush Christmas, with its wry satire and affection for all things Australian, is as fresh today as when it was written. Award-winning artist Dee Huxley brings it to life with her whimsical illustrations.' (Publication summary)
