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, while others want to change the whole world.

This little book of letters is wicked, witty and warm-hearted. Dear Santa will make you laugh, think and feel and is the perfect Christmas gift for those who speak human.

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 others.

Illustrations by Shaun Tan.

Samuel Johnson OAM is a much-loved Australian actor, best known for his work on THE SECRET LIVES OF US, CRACKERJACK, UNDERBELLY II, RUSH and as the star of the hit biopic MOLLY. In recent times he is more proud of his work as a breast cancer advocate and determined unicyclist. He won a Gold Logie in 2017 for his work on MOLLY and was named the 2018 Victorian of the Year for his charity work to vanquish cancer. He has retired from acting until he has raised $10M for cancer research. So far the charity he set up with his sister Connie, Love Your Sister, has raised $8M.
