    1. Not, you never said that Snugglepot and Cuddlepie was a sex-and-violence-infused philosophically-motivated Scandinavian-themed retelling of Genesis. WHY DID YOU LIE TO ME?______________________[Later the same day]Well, I'm definitely building up a picture of what this book is like. I'm going to be soooo disappointed if it turns out that the recommendations engine was just stringing me along.


    2. If the title Snugglepot and Cuddlepie makes you wince, then this is not for you. For as the saying goes, what you see is what you get. On the other hand, if you just went "Aww!" at the title and picture, or you have a yen for childhood nostalgia, or you have very young children at the moment, then this is a treat. Older children may sneer contemptuously, or they may secretly rather enjoy it if they like cute stories. It is an Australian classic.May Gibbs was an Australian author, although she wa [...]


    3. *mrsbbookreviews.wordpressIt is an absolute pleasure to be involved in showcasing the great work of one of Australia’s most treasured children’s book writers and illustrators, May Gibbs. As part of the celebrations to commemorate one hundred years since the work of May Gibbs was first published, a range of May Gibbs books have been remastered, in updated formats for audiences new and old to enjoy.Here at Mrs B’s Book Reviews, I will be conducting my own promotion of May Gibbs, an Australia [...]


    4. I’m not sure how well-known outside of Australia these stories – and art work, especially – are. Even if you didn’t read, or had read to you, the stories of the gumnut babies Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, their friends Ragged Blossom, and Mr Lizard, and those dastardly Banksia men, if you’re Aussie, you know the image of a gumnut baby well. These you can see on the cover here, whose dress and life is based on the gumnuts produced by the eucalyptus tree.Taking an educated guess, I’d say t [...]



    5. My memories of this book are less about the story - which is all over the place and darned hard to follow sometimes - and ALL about the pictures. Gorgeous, detailed, parallel universe, Aussie bush, hand-drawn illustrations. May Gibbs was truly an artist.Bum scrum. My favourite. You'll have to find a copy and go towards the end of the book (Little Obelia) to find it. Having seen a rugby scrum will explain better, but still ridiculously cute.And yes, like many Aussie kids 'afore me, the Big Bad Ba [...]


    6. This book is the reason why I have so much love and respect for lizards and am still scared of Banksias. I have an irrational fear that they will come alive and render me deadibones!


    7. I don't think it's because I'm an adult. In the end, I've read quite some children's books I loved Perhaps it's cos I lack the sense of nostalgia here? Either way, I thought "Australia's best-loved children's book" would blow my socks off, but it was hard to get into the story. I quite enjoyed Gibbs' writing style, though I felt like running around like a chicken without a head throughout the fist book "Snugglepot and Cuddlepie"."Little Ragged Blossom" brought a breath of fresh air. Not only the [...]


    8. I got this book secondhanded in Blok M and quite satisfied that (turns out) this actually is a "classic" and popular childhood story in Australia. I also love the cheeky names of our heroes, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. Jadi pengen ndusel nggak siiihI found this not easy to read because not sure if it's because a. my English is getting worse or b. I am just stupid. But after some pages it is okay as long you're patient enough to give attention (got lost many times tho) because the pace is really qu [...]


    9. Gibbs achieves much in these three little books. Her illustrations are lovely, her characters loveable, and the stories enjoyable—with elements of both fantasy and reality. But in addition, she showcases the wildlife downunder (both in the bush and under the sea)—at times, in rather creative ways—the Kangaroo cabs for one pop immediately to mind. The stories are written simply, yet have a certain amount of ‘wordplay’, in some instances reminiscent of Alice. And she conveys her message [...]


    10. this is like my childhood in one book. It used to be a tradition that my mum would read me a book every night or a chapter of a book if it was a series or a novel. But when we started reading these it was like a whole new world opened up to me. The characters were mostly absolutely adorable with their little hats and the writing managed to reach out to younger readers/ listeners emotionally too. The pictures were incredibly lovely. All in all, I loved this series and the memories it holds for me [...]


    11. I read this not too long ago and wondered what on earth happened. The language is a bit odd, and that prevented me from going further. It's a classic for a very good reason: the concept and idea, plus the illustrations are brilliant. I just wish the language was different.


    12. Absolutely loved it as a child. Adored the drawings, they were so detailed and just wonderful. I still have a thing for "gum leaves", because of this wonderful book. A great childhood adventure.



    13. This is an Aussie tale that is such a classic that it is still read in homes today. It is an exceptional story accompanied by exceptional art. Lots of love for the Aussie classics.


    14. It's a shame more people don't know this book. If they did, they would understand my terror of all things that look like Banksia Men!


    15. An Australian Classic, that will warm all hearts. Cuddlepie and Snugglepot are tiny little Nuts or fairies , who together have adventures together, along with their many friends. Though only a slim book,it is full of the beautiful artwork of May Gibbs.If you want something to read this Christmas that is unlike anything you usually read, this is it,, Beautifully written, and artwork to love, , for all ages,


    16. Possibly one of the most iconic series of my childhood! I loved looking at the pictures - it was so beautifully illustrated. Particularly loved the pink flowers, and I do recall a giant gecko that was a lot of fun!The Banksia Men didn't really do it for me, but who likes the villain when you're a kid?






    17. Looooovely illustrations, I absolutely adore them. Storywise there's a bit too much happening that doesn't really make sense. I don't know if I expect too much for a children's book maybe, but then for children it's quite horrific: actually the whole book is quite a thriller with those wicked Banksia men! Still I found it super special to read this famous Australian book as a non-ozzie :)


    18. I am certainly glad I fulfil the 7+ category this book seems to have been given. Personally I think when it comes to books like Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, Peter Pan, Blinky Bill, any of these classic children's literature there should be no age. Everyone must enjoy them as soon as they are able. There is nothing in this book a six year old wouldn't understand, they'd love it.Snugglepot and Cuddlepie is practically an Australian institution. I do not know how legitimate these claims are but I thin [...]


    19. C loved this book much more than I expected him to. Me? Not so much. It's just a touch too twee for my taste.


    20. Ok this book is one that definitely has a bunch of mixed thoughts for me. My oldest niece (who is 14) sent it to me without reading it since the reading material itself seemed questionable while too strange for her own tastes. My first thoughts were like "ok". And then my second thought was, "I don't know about this. It could possibly be ok, maybe." And I couldn't help but look through the pictures of the book itself. They were quaint, cute and very detailed while doing a wonderful job into addi [...]


    21. The complete adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie include the stories of not only Snugglepot and Cuddlepie but little Ragged Blossom and Little Obelia. This book follows the gumnut babies on their travels, with much loved Australian aminals such as Koalas, Kookaburras and a platypus keeping them company throughout the three stories. With Bad Banksia men out in force to capture Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, these adventures are thrilling from start to finish. With twists and turns around every corn [...]


    22. Recently I posted a blog called Cherishing a Classic. For the first time in 50 years, I did just that. Revisiting The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, I was transported to my childhood. Once again, I was 8 years old, and  loving the story anew. I was interested to see 3 posters outside the library in a local public school last week. They were posters celebrating 100 years of 3 authors, and the first was May Gibbs, with the cover of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie under Ms. Gibb's phot [...]


    23. The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie contains: The Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie (first published in 1918) and its two sequels, Little Ragged Blossom (1920) and Little Obelia (1921). The tales follow the adventures of two gumnut babies & their friends and foes.I have just read this for the first time. I don't know why, but it never crossed my path as a child, unlike The Magic Pudding, Blinky Bill & The Muddle-Headed Wombat. You'd think it would have been a natural incl [...]


    24. Confesso di aver scoperto in modo assolutamente casuale questa autrice australiana che però è conosciutissima e molto amata nel suo paese. Le sue storie e i disegni di Snugglepot e Cuddlepie hanno accompagnato l'infanzia di molte generazioni e a lei sono stati dedicati musei, eventi e addirittura delle monete celebrative per il centenario dalla prima edizione delle avventure di S.e C. I disegni sono molto belli (anche se la mia edizione non riporta quelli a colori, purtroppo) e queste creaturi [...]
