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. A great end-of-year Australian story to share with young children, that pays tribute to the traditional Christmas story in such a way that it can be enjoyed and understood by people of all faiths and cultures.
