Blossom Possum and the Christmas Quacker

It was Christmas Eve down under

Koala Claws’ last stop for the night

‘I’m sooo hot and tired,’ he thought.

‘A quick nap will see me right.’

Blossom Possum and her friends try everything they can to wake Koala Claws, but he is fast asleep. Unable to wake him to his Bush Christmas duties, Blossom Possum is faced with the dilemma of ‘who will do his job?’ Can Blossom Possum and the gang save Bush Christmas? A fun and humorous way to get into the Christmas spirit Aussie style, with a bunch of favourite wildlife characters.

From Kids Book Review: Entertaining and lively, with clever word play, repetition and rhyming verse, Australian animals again take centre stage in a Christmas book and perform to expectation. The original illustrations for  Blossom Possumin 2006, were created by the late Kilmeny Niland. This edition with Christina Booth’s illustrations brings additional life to an already zany text that children will love repeating.
