Comments about The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie:

I bought this expecting a picture book for little children. However, it is in a 'novel' format - a small book with black and white pictures. It is best suited toward young readers (7-12yrs) and NOT for little kids who can't read yet and want to look at colour pictures.

          Comments about The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie:

          I bought this thinking it would be a great present for my friend's baby, but it's not like the books I had when I was younger.
          Small writing, few (if any?) pictures don't make for the best baby book, but that's okay, just not what I expected.
          I'll return it and pay the extra to get the big hard cover.

            May Gibbs

            May Gibbs (1877-1969) came to Australia at the age of four. Even as a child May drew and painted, encouraged by her parents. She studied art, both in Western Australia and in England, before settling in Sydney to follow a successful career as a writer and illustrator of children’s books.

            Her most famous book, Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, was published in 1918. Her bestselling series featuring the Gumnut babies, their friends and their foes, established an enduring mythology of the Australian bush for generations raised firmly on traditional European fairytales. In 1955, she received an MBE for her contribution to children’s literature.
