'If you could ask Santa for absolutely anything, what would you ask for?

Samuel Johnson OAM, Australia's favourite skylarker, brother and determined cancer vanquisher, has asked his friends and supporters (who just happen to be some of Australia's best writers, comics, actors, artists, musicians and personalities) to share their letters to Santa.

Some letters are naughty.
Some letters are nice.
Some echo a favourite childhood memory.
Some beg forgiveness.
Some are angry.
Some just want something sweet.
Some want to change their own world, others want to change the whole world.

Contributors include Helen Garner, Adam Hills, Deborah Mailman, Rove McManus, Leigh Sales, Grant Denyer, John Williamson, Myf Warhurst, John Paul Young, Mia Freedman, Shaun Micallef, Missy Higgins, and many more.'

This book was wonderful.

Victorian of the Year Samuel Johnson OAM has put together an entertaining, witty and heartwarming collection of letters to Santa written by some of Australia's most loved personalities.

I was so excited to get my hand on this book and it didn't disappoint. I was surprised by how mush some of the letters resonated with me. I laughed, I cried and I laughed again whilst reading this book.

This book contains the perfect mix of naughty and nice. Some letter will make you think, some will make you feel and others will make you laugh out loud. I started and finished this book with a smile on my face and a warm and fuzzy feeling in my heart.

The weird and wacky Illustrations by Shaun Tan add an extra layer of awesomeness to this amazing book.

This beautiful little book of letters is the perfect gift this Christmas and with every copy sold contributing to cancer research, there really is no reason not to purchase this book.

Dear Santa by Samuel Johnson is an absolute must have for all Australian households.
