One orange evening, tiger-striped with blackened trees, a pig sat, reminiscing. 

So begins Applesauce and the Christmas Miracle, an enchanting book from the best-selling author/illustrator team of Glenda Millard and Stephen Michael King. Against a very Australian setting of drought and bushfire, a little pig called Applesauce learns that Christmas comes from the heart. This delightful tale is a clever and poetic take on the Christmas story. A perfect end of year exhibition to share with young students, and to remind us what is important about the festive season.
