My first book of snugglepot and cuddlepie
Snugglepot and Cuddlepie by May Gibbs | Lost in a Good BookSnugglepot and Cuddlepie long to see a human and set off on an adventure through the bush, meeting friends and foes including the evil Banksia Men along the way. The legend goes that Norman Lindsay wrote The Magic Pudding to win an argument with a friend that children would rather read about food than fairies. It encapsulates the Aussie notion of mateship with archetypal bushman characters and a good-natured mockery of authority. Filled with rhymes and short songs, it proved perfect fodder for an operatic adaptation by Victorian Opera in , which returns in to celebrate the th anniversary of the book. An Aussie larrikin with little respect for the law, Blinky Bill has many adventures with his bush friends Splodge the kangaroo, Flap the platypus and his mentor Mr Wombat or Wombo as Blinky prefers to call him. Based on stories Dorothy Wall told her son, Blinky Bill also carries a conservationist moral imagined in a time when over a million koalas were hunted for their fur.
