Reviews

The Australian Twelve Days of Christmas, puts an Aussie slant on the old song, with partridges and maids a milking replaced with a kookaburra up a gum tree, wombats, possums and, of course, flies…This is a fun Christmas offering which will appeal to Aussie kids, but would also make a novel gift for overseas friends and family.
