The Magic Pudding was first cooked in 1918, and thousands of children (and their parents) have been relishing it ever since. Norman Lindsay's timeless classic follows the adventures of debonair young koala Bunyip Bluegum, sailor Bill Barnacle and penguin Sam Sawnoff - owners of the much-desired Magic Pudding Albert - who try to out-wit Possum and Wombat, the professional, and extraordinarily persistent, pudding-thieves. This new paperback edition includes all the original illustrations and, for those who have not yet tasted this pudding's magic delights, it is definitely worth savouring.
