CD Boxed Set
'Blinky Bill' by Dorothy Wall, 'Magic Pudding' by Norman Lindsay, and 'Snugglepot and Cuddlepie' by May Gibbs
These classic stories from childhood can be relived or passed on to new generations in CD in this beautifully presented gift box.
Blinky Bill, mischievous little koala, has been a favourite with children since he made his first appearance in 1933 in 'Blinky Bill, The Quaint Little Australian'.
In 1918, because of an argument with a literary critic who thought children were interested in fairies, whereas Norman Lindsay thought they preferred food, 'The Magic Pudding' was first cooked. Thousands of children (and, just quietly, their parents) have been relishing it ever since.
'Snugglepot and Cuddlepie'
May Gibbs' enchanting bush world, peopled with gumnut heroes and heroines, solid friends like Mr Lizard and Mrs Bear and of course, the villainous Banksia men, has played a very important part in the imaginative background of Australian children.
