Boxing Day Test (out of print)

Author(s): Sharon Whillis

New Zealand titles - children

Reading age 4 to 7 yrs. Patrick was not surprised when the first present he opened on Christmas Day was a cricket set. After all, he'd done everything possible to make it happen. But when the other family members didn't immediately rush to play a game, he is very disappointed. Nana finds him huddled in a miserable ball in the kitchen. When he tells her of his disappointment, wise Nana announces to the family that the 'Brodie Family Boxing Day Test' will be held the next day. Everyone thinks it's a great idea. The resulting game is a mad-cap event that's bound to become a tradition in the Brodie family. The game is squeezed into the back yard with special rules for the ball hitting the tree or landing in the vege garden, and a special lounge chair is provided for the umpire. A longer story for more advanced readers, with a sense of humour.
