GUMNUT BABIES - May Gibbs

Like most Australian children I was brought up reading the tales of May Gibbs' Snugglepot & Cuddlepie, believing they truly existed among the blossoms and gum nuts on the Eucalyptus trees, and being scared of Banksia seed pods for the fear the nasty Banksia Men would jump out at me. Author May Gibbs was fascinated by the seed pods and flowers of the eucalyptus tree and was inspired to write many wonderful books for children.
