'A delightful collection of some of May Gibbs's most charming 'bush babies' stories.
May Gibbs's marvellous creation - the Gumnut world, with its tiny heroes and heroines and deliciously villainous villains - has fascinated generations of children. Gumnuts at the races, at the ballet and dancing at balls are some of the scenes that have delighted us all.
Brought together here are the stories of Flannel Flowers and Other Bush Babies, Wattle Babies, Boronia Babies and Gum-Blossom Babies plus Nuttybub and Nittersing and Chucklebud and Wunkydoo.' (Source: Publisher's blurb)
