It's Christmas Day in Australia and all Natascha's dad wants is a hug from his daughter, but she’s not interested. In fact, she's downright grumpy. Fortunately, her dad has a traditional family cure for grumpiness… the greatest storytelling you've ever heard!
Join us this Christmas and find out whether a magical story and a cuddly Koala, can encourage Natascha to give her poor old dad a hug. The perfect start to your seasonal celebrations, based on the best-selling book How The Koala Learnt To Hug by Steven Lee.
