From his lofty watch post, Possum is drawn to the sight of a distant tree covered in sparkling trinkets. A Christmas Tree, according to Kookaburra. So begins a quest in which Possum and his crafty crew of helpers try very hard to decorate their very own Christmas gum tree from Bowerbird’s treasure trove. But it’s not as easy as you might think!
To celebrate one of our favourite times of the year, KBR and Walker Books Australia have a copy of Jackie Hosking’s and Nathaniel Eckstrom’s, An Aussie Christmas Gum Tree to pop under your Christmas Tree this year. Full of Australian flora and fauna and lyrical rhyming text, this fun, light-hearted book is great for developing language skills and would make the perfect gift for sharing this Christmas.
For the chance to win this festive new release, tell us in 25 words or less what’s your favourite Aussie Christmas tradition.
Email your answer along with your name and postal address to dimity. The response we like best will a copy of this title in time for Christmas!

Entries without a name and street address will be ineligible. Winners will be announced right here on our website on 13 December 2021.
