Magic Pudding, The (HB)
Never out of print since 1918, this new edition will whet the appetite of a whole new generation of ‘puddin’ fanciers’.
Believing wholeheartedly that children preferred food to fairies, Norman Lindsay concocted a recipe for success that has lingered for ninety years. Here are the adventures of Sam Sawnoff, Barnacle Bill and Albert, the cut-and-come again pudding, who requires ‘politeness and constant eatin’.’ this beautifully designed new edition of a perennial favourite also includes a section, ‘From the Publisher’s Archives’ containing a fascinating collection of correspondence between Norman Lindsay and his publishers, Angus & Robertson. the letters have come from the A & R Archives held in the Mitchell Library and were selected with the assistance of Lindsay’s granddaughter, Helen Glad, who also wrote a short biography of him especially for this book. Ages 8+
