Ayla's Christmas Wish
Pamela Jones, Lucia Masciullo (illus.)
Ayla’s Christmas Wish
Christmas is coming and Ayla wants a snowman just like in her book, but there is no snow to be found in her drought-stricken town, not even a drop of rain. Only bales of hay.
Ayla's Christmas Wish is inspired by the small, south-west Victorian town of Tarrington, which runs a hay bale design competition each year. This book compares European Christmas traditions with the reality of a hot, dry Australian summer. Behind the story of Ayla wishing for a snowman, there is a town wishing for rain.
This story celebrates a community at Christmas-time, and highlights the importance and beauty of small-town resilience.
