Snugglepot and Cuddlepie's Windy Day

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie's Windy Day (1997) Post 246

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie's Windy Day is (I think) the last of the May Gibbs stories I retold under contract. That is, it's the last I can find empirical evidence of as existing in published form. There are several others I wrote and was paid for but of which I've never seen in the paper or as a cover online. This one involves Snugglepot and Cuddlepie playing with gum leaf parachutes. They get blown away and have to find their way home. Along the way, they help out friends and strangers.
In the pics they have no gumleaf "fig leaves". Not sure why.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service.
