Series 02 Folder 130 Item 06: May Gibbs, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, 1918 - p8

by May Gibbs

Then he pounced down upon Snugglepot and flew with him out into the Sky. 
At the flutter of wings Cud awoke. When he saw the terrible thing that was happening he screamed aloud.

"Take me! Take me! 
"I don’t want to be left
" I would rather be eaten with Snugglepot than live 
"alone without him."

But the Greedy Owl flew on. Away, away till he was but a speck in the distance.

Poor little Cuddlepie tried to run after them but the tears in his eyes were so big that he could not see which way to go.
