Snugglepot and Cuddlepie

Illustration taken from "Snugglepot and Cuddlepie meet Mr Lizard". Illustrated by Noela Young. Original characters created by May Gibbs. Published by Angus & Robertson, 1970. Shortly before she died in 1969, May Gibbs gave approval for her work to be adapted for the Young Australia Series. It was her wish that her original characters should be faithfully reproduced, as they have been by Noela Young in her sensitive illustrations.
