May Gibbs: Snugglepot & Cuddlepie 100th Anniversary

In December 1916, the first of May Gibbs ever-popular bush baby books were published. Then, in 1918 we were introduced to the adventures of the irrepressible brothers Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. 100 years on we're celebrating May Gibbs in a series of events.
