Product Description

Believing wholeheartedly that children preferred food to fairies, Norman Lindsay concocted a recipe for success that has lingered for ninety years. Here are the adventures of Sam Sawnoff, Barnacle Bill and Albert, the cut-and-come again pudding who requires 'politeness and constant eatin'.

' This beautifully designed new edition of a perennial favourite also includes a section, From the Publisher's Archives, containing a fascinating collection of correspondence between Norman Lindsay and his publishers, Angus & Robertson. The letters have come from the A & R Archives held in the Mitchell Library and were selected with the assistance of Lindsay's granddaughter, Helen Glad, who also wrote a short biography of him especially for this book.

About the Author

A truely magic pudding!


I have bought a copy for each new 'family' as the copy I grew up with and from which my children were read to from is very old and very loved.



Memory from childhood shared


A story that was read to me when I was little, now I can share it with my first child. A wonderful story with beautiful language. I expect that my daughter will grow up with this book. I was seriously impressed when this addition turned up, not only is it a beautiful book it has reference information in the back, providing a little bit of history of the story and the author. A beautiful edition that I will definitely keep for my daughter and hopefully one day she will share the same joy with her children.
