Originally published in 1918, May Gibbs’ Tales of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie™ went on to become a much-loved Australian children’s classic.

Creating characters out of gumnuts, banksias, flowers, and other Australian flora and fauna, Gibbs captured the imagination of children and adults alike, employing humour to appeal to all ages.

The story of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie™ follows two Gumnut Babies – miniature children born in gumnuts, who continue wearing the nuts as protective hats – who are foster brothers.
