An Australian Christmas is threatened when drought takes hold. A little girl has only one wish - for rain. Will her wish come true?
Dedicated to Aussie farmers, and an antidote to the commercialism of Christmas, All I Want For Christmas is Rain is an uplifting story about one girl's selfless desire to ease the strain on her family and community at this special time of the year.
The rhyming narrative from author Cori Brooke is simple, yet paints a vivid picture of the importance of rain to the community and the perils of farm life. The watercolour pictures by illustrator Megan Forward are full of exquisite detail and expertly portray the oppressively dry rural landscape.
Authentic and emotional, All I Want For Christmas is Rain is a delight, and the true meaning of Christmas spirit shines through on every page. Told beautifully by Abbie McLeish, this Aussie Christmas story is gorgeously unique.
