May Gibbs Exhibition


In December 1916, the first of May Gibbs ever-popular bush baby books were published, featuring her gentle but mischievous gumnut and gum blossom babies. The books were an immediate success and more titles quickly followed, including, in 1918, the adventures of the irrepressible brothers Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

A century on, this display pays tribute to the work of this celebrated Australian children’s book author, illustrator and early environmentalist. It introduces some of her best known and loved characters and stories, and, drawing on her personal archive, explores her working process and life.

The adventures of May Gibbs’ bush babies will be on show at Sutherland Library in a display of Gibbs’ work, drawn from the State Library of NSW collection.

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, the much-loved Australian classic.

Literary speaker Walter Mason discusses May Gibbs, her life, works and best known characters: the gumnut babies.
