Tea and Sugar Christmas

Jane Jolly, Robert Ingpen

The Tea and Sugar train only came once a week on a Thursday.
But the special Christmas train only came once a year.
Today was Sunday.
Four more days without sugar.
Four more days until the Christmas train. Please, please be on time. Please don’t be late.

Join Kathleen in the outback as she eagerly awaits the Christmas Tea and Sugar train. Will she meet Father Christmas? Will she receive a Christmas gift from him?

A delightful, heart-warming story from the National Library of Australia that will intrigue, captivate and introduce readers to a slice of the past.

Wonderful sensitive illustrations, including a beautiful double fold-out image showing the shops inside all the carriages.

Centered in community and togetherness--joyful, happy, beautiful--Tea and Sugar Christmas is the epitome of--well ... Christmas.

- Kids Book Review

It's a perfect blend of peace and excitement, hardship and bounty, the everyday and the special.
