Our charming Australian books make wonderful gifts for children. 'Australian Verse for the Young', illustrated by Lynne Wilson, has 10 delightful stories written in rhyming verse and 'The Book of Australian Nursery Rhyme', contains many characters from the Australian bush including koalas, wombats, pelicans, kangaroos and crows. This makes an ideal book for young children to familiarize themselves with Australian Wildlife.
May Gibbs, the creator of the 'Gumnut Babies' and 'Snugglepot and Cuddlepie', has retained her place in Australian consciousness due to the popularity of her delightful stories and their illustrations. She has established an enduring mythologyof the Australian bush and her exquisitely drawn illustrations have endeared generations to her work.
