Christmas is just around the corner for Snugglepot and Cuddlepie in this seasonal edition of a May Gibbs' classic. They each have a list, but while Cuddlepie’s includes cleaning, baking and generally getting ready for Christmas, Snugglepot plans to eat, hang his pillowcase and search for hidden presents.But when Mrs Snake slides in will she ruin all Cuddlepie’s hard work, or can Snugglepot put right the mess and save Christmas before Cuddlepie gets home?

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie have been entertaining young children since first being published in 1918. This new Christmas story is based on Gibbs’ cheeky and adventurous characters and the iconic illustrations depicting the Australian bush are timeless. This would make a nice Christmas story to introduce the classic to a new generation of readers.
