A delightful collection of some of May Gibbs's most charming 'bush babies' stories presented altogether on a single poster.

May Gibbs's marvellous creation - the Gumnut world, with its tiny heroes and heroines and deliciously villainous villains - has fascinated generations of children since its first publication in 1916. Gumnuts at the races, at the ballet, and dancing at balls are some of May's exquisitely illustrated scenes that have delighted us all.

This beautiful new edition has been produced to mark the Centenary of Gumnut Babies and contains the stories of Gum-Blossom Babies, Flannel Flowers and Other Bush Babies, Boronia Babies, Wattle Babies, plus Nuttybub and Nittersing and Chucklebud and Wunkydoo.

When she died May Gibbs bequeathed the copyright of all her works to The Northcott Society and Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Through her foresight and generosity, proceeds from the sale of May Gibbs products have supported thousands of Australian children with disabilities and their families. For further information visit
