A GORGEOUS SLIPCASE EDITION THAT CELEBRATES THE CENTENARY ANNIVERSARY OF A MUCH-LOVED AUSTRALIAN CLASSIC.

Now in a slipcase to celebrate the centenary anniversary of its publication, The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie combines in one edition May Gibbs' much-loved classics, The Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie and its two sequels, Little Ragged Blossom and Little Obelia.

Quintessentially Australian, these delightful tales have never been out of print; indeed the fantasy world of May Gibbs has been a source of continual fascination for generations of children. May's is a world filled with fears and excitement and adventures both extraordinary and everyday. A world peopled with small creatures, where the real mixes tantalizingly with the imaginary and provides a window to the magic we all believe exists in the bush.

In this edition, all of May's original artwork has been sourced and re-scanned and the illustrations look as exquisite as the day May put down her paintbrush all those years ago. A fresh new design in full colour that is true to the original editions of these three stories makes this edition a delight to rediscover - or read for the very first time.

Included is a biography of May Gibbs that reveals her remarkable life and talent and how deserving she is to be regarded as one of Australia's most treasured illustrators, artists and children's authors.

Expected to be a version of all stories in full color after reading "A fresh new design in full colour that is true to the original editions of these three stories makes this edition a delight to rediscover - or read for the very first time." however only limited pages within are actually in color rest are black and white, little hard to get this generations little ones over the line with a book that is in black and white !

About the Author


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.
