Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and /Gibbs, May/Hardb/0732284287/S035-G
Angus & Robertson
Welcome to the world of May Gibbs.
The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie is undoubtedly Australia's bestûloved 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.
In this new edition, all of May Gibbs' original artwork has been sourced and re-scanned and the illustrations look as exquisite as the day May put down her paint brush all those years ago. A fresh new design in full colour that is true to the original editions of these three stories makes this new edition a delight to rediscover - or read for the very first time.
