Here is a book I forgot to review back in August, and I feel awful about that as it really does deserve a mention!
Snugglepot and Cuddlepie's Sleepover is a new story in the Gumnut Babies series, from one of Australia's best loved authors and illustrators, May Gibbs.
I remember reading the Snugglepot and Cuddlepie books back when I was a child, and now the timeless characters are being introduced to a whole new generation.
In this new adventure, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie are helping Mrs Koala organise a sleepover. But when Mrs Kookaburra overhears and decides to send her six chicks along as well, they wonder if they're going to fit everyone in! Luckily there's more than enough room and it becomes a case of the more the merrier!
Written by Mark Macleod, with the classic illustrations of May Gibbs, this new tale will delight both adult lovers of the series, as well as children discovering it for the first time.
