A humorous take on T’was the Night before Christmas, but with a real kiwi twist.
This is the ultimate read-aloud for Christmas in New Zealand. The rhyming text flows off the page and the illustrations capture the colours of a truly New Zealand festive season. This book makes an excellent gift for relatives in the northern hemisphere who are missing home at Christmas time.
Praise for A Kiwi Night Before Christmas
“Yvonne Morrison’s witty text, full of Kiwi colloquialisms, is complemented by Deborah Hinde’s illustrations which wonderfully capture a traditional Kiwi Christmas at the beach. This delightful picture book is sure to become a classic and is the ideal gift to send New Zealanders overseas, to remind them and their children of what they are missing out on.”— NZ Herald
“This book is a colourful and entertaining stocking filler, and is likely to become a Christmas favourite for young New Zealanders.” — Magpies
