'Snugglepot & Cuddlepie are on a mission to see a human – but only in the distance! Join your favourite gumnut babies on their journey through the magical Australian bush to the big city. Along the way you’ll meet friends and foes including Professor Kookaburra, Mrs Fantail, Mr Lizard, Mr Frog, Mrs Snake, Mr Possum and, of course, Little Ragged Blossom.

'Will Snugglepot lead the way? Can Cuddlepie hold his nerve? Can they avoid falling victim to the Big Bad Banksia Man?
