You all know the tune for our Australian Anthem, well this tune is the same.  Only you haven’t heard these lyrics before!

Written and sung by well known singer/songwriter Colin Buchanan and illustrated beautifully by Simon Swingler, this book is a Christmas must have.  Santa’s Aussie Mix-Up is a great story/song about what happens when Santa let’s a bunch of Australian animals help him out.  The results of which are funny, messy and colourfully, chaotic.

“Australians all. I need your help!”

Said Santa Clause one day,

“To get my Christmas stocking stuffing

Done by Christmas day!”


Stick this one in their stockings folks!
