Review: A Snugglepot and Cuddlepie Christmas

The divine May Gibbs and her adorable gumnut babies have their very own Christmas special with this adorable hard cover book.

It's one more day until Christmas and Snugglepot and Cuddlepie have had lots of things to do. Cuddlepie had been busy collecting bush tucker, making a cake and washing placemats.

Snugglepot, on the other hand, has plucked a raspberry from Cuddlepie's cake, ate one bush tomato, and oh - hung out one red pillowcase.

Cuddlepie continues with his busyness, dashing off to do something he's forgotten. While he's gone, Snugglepot sets to searching the house for his Christmas present, but there's nothing to be found. Then Mrs Snake appears to cause trouble--making a mess of the tree.

Can Snugglepot clean up in time for Cuddlepie's return? and will Snugglepot receive a Christmas present this year?

The text for this book has been penned by author Mark McLeod to correspond with Gibbs' classic illustrations. A lovely Christmas gift for overseas guests or Aussie kids living far away.
