Comments

Originally published in 1918, May Gibbs’ Tales of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie™ went on to become a much-loved Australian children’s classic. Her creation of a fantasy world within the Australian bush, using creatures and images that were well-recognised and found right across the country, has fascinated generations of Australians for decades.
