When his ship sinks off the South Pole Bill Barnacle (Hugo Weaving) discovers a magic pudding called Albert (John Cleese) who can talk change flavour on request and lasts forever so demands to be continuously eaten. The crew are divided over the pudding but Bill and his first mate Sam (Sam Neil) resolve to protect it. Meanwhile Bunyip Bluegum the Koala (Geoffrey Rush) sets out on an adventure to find his parents with his rough-and-ready travelling companions in tow. Their paths cross when Bunyip stumbles into the middle of an attempt by thieves to steal the everlasting pudding.'

Works about this Work

Kate Grenville : Finding Australian Stories, an Extract from #SaveOzStories Kate Grenville , single work column 'The proposed changes to copyright have the potential to send Australian writing, in one lifetime, through an entire cycle from bust to boom and back to bust again. Sixty years ago, what Australians got to read was by and large dictated by people on the other side of the world. We were a literary colony. If the Productivity Commission has its way, we'll be back to that same second-hand status. ...'

— Appears in: The Australian , 26 July 2012; (p. 15)
'The opening page of "A Misfit in Souls", an unpublished novel by Norman Lindsay, bares the author's black-inked scrawl: "Dear Keith, possibly you will remain as the only reader of this cheerful and irresponsible little fantasy." So judicious in his depictions of Australiana, Lindsay, on this count at least, will soon be proved wrong. While there are no plans yet to publish the completed draft work, replete with pen-and-ink drawings and dedicated to his friend Keith Wingrove, for the first time the book will be made publicly available next week by the University of Technology, Sydney. The undated work is one of 900 items acquired by the university's library last year in an auction of the Australian artist and author's work. The collection will be officially launched next week. The library paid $320,000 for the collection, which belonged to artist and author James Kemsley and is being promoted as the most significant and extensive literary cache of Lindsay's work.'

— Appears in: Reading Across the Pacific : Australia-United States Intellectual Histories 2010; (p. 339-359)
'This paper will attempt to describe the determining factors and structural patterns of relations between Australian books and American publishers from the 19th century to the present. Its central question will be: how did 'Australian books' find their way to American publishers? Can we discern any distinctive patterns over time or for particular genres, or simply an accumulation of one-off cases? To what extent, if at all, did the traffic in Australian books depend on cultural symmetries? Did Australian books travel as Australian or British books? In what ways were they dependent upon relations between Australian (or British) publishers or literary agents and their American counterparts? What role did international copyright regimes or trade agreements play? And how might the American connection change our understanding of 'Australian literature'?' (Author's abstract)

The Magic Pudding: A Mirror of Our Fondest Wishes Christopher Kelen , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 6 no. 1 2007; (p. 65-78)
'This paper investigates Norman Lindsay's 1918 illustrated children's novel The Magic Pudding with a view to understanding how the text reflects the state of Australian wishfulness at a particular moment in the history of Australian literary consciousness and the national self-conception. In The Magic Pudding the distorting mirror shown [sic] the subject entering culture is one which hails (as it teaches) a characteristic cynicism with regard to the rules and rights of possession - a cynicism befitting the un-nameable anywhere of the action. This essay argues that the puddin' as possession (slave and cannibal commodity) has provided an apt palimpsest for wishful thinking of the Australian kind, likewise for Australian styles of cynicism with regard to such wishfulness.'

Transpacific or Transatlantic Traffic? Australian Books and American Publishers David Carter , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Reading Across the Pacific : Australia-United States Intellectual Histories 2010; (p. 339-359)
'This paper will attempt to describe the determining factors and structural patterns of relations between Australian books and American publishers from the 19th century to the present. Its central question will be: how did 'Australian books' find their way to American publishers? Can we discern any distinctive patterns over time or for particular genres, or simply an accumulation of one-off cases? To what extent, if at all, did the traffic in Australian books depend on cultural symmetries? Did Australian books travel as Australian or British books? In what ways were they dependent upon relations between Australian (or British) publishers or literary agents and their American counterparts? What role did international copyright regimes or trade agreements play? And how might the American connection change our understanding of 'Australian literature'?' (Author's abstract)
