Welcome to the world of May Gibbs.
The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie is undoubtedly Australia's best-loved children's book. Generation after generation of Australian children have been fascinated by the fantasy world of May Gibbs.
It is a world filled with fear and excitement, and adventures both extraordinary and everyday, a world peopled with small creatures, the real mixed tantalisingly with the imaginary. Best of all, it is a world so unmistakably Australian that all who read it know that magic exists in our land, as close as the bush is to their back yard.
Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie was combined with its two sequels, Little Ragged Blossom and Little Obelia, in 1940, and since then The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie has never been out of print.
