Little Dog and the Christmas wish, set in Melbourne on Christmas Eve, 1956, provided the perfect opportunity to salute the inauguration of the Christmas Windows and its parent city. Our concise interpretation includes the Christmas Windows of '56, Melbourne/Australia icons and most of Melbourne's landmarks that are pictured in the book:
- Flinders St Station
- Collins St & the Block Arcade
- Hopetoun Tea Rooms
- wall st bridge
- Victoria Parade
- the Skipping Girl Neon sign
- W Class trams
- Holden FX and FE cars
The end result is the fine work of many and varied talented artists - designers, sculptors, costumiers, scenic painters, carpenters, engineers, digital artists, light and sound technicians.
Little Dog and the Christmas Wish
by Corinne Fenton, text ©2014 and Robin Cowcher illustrations, ©2014; Walker Books Australia
Little Dog is left home alone on Christmas Eve, while Johnathon and his mother go shopping. When thunder frightens Little Dog, he runs off in search for Johnathon. Little Dog journeys from suburbia Kew and through the Melbourne CBD, (passing the icons and landmarks mentioned) and eventually finds his way home where Johnathon is waiting for him.
