Series 02 Folder 130 Item 06: May Gibbs, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, 1918 - p1

by May Gibbs
Transcript: 

Here are the Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.
They were Foster Brothers and this is how it came about.

When Cuddlepot was very small that is – when he had only been out of the Bud a few hours- a great wind arose and lifting him out of his Mother’s arms carried him far across the tops of many trees and left him in a Spider web.

This saved his life – but again he nearly lost it- for a shortsighted old Bird was about to eat mistaking him for a grub was about to eat him up, when, a Nut, beholding shouted 
"Bird! Bird! mind the Snake!"
