The Magic Pudding is the quintessential Australian children's classic for children and adults alike. Illustrated by Norman Lindsay, The Magic Pudding is a humorous and fantastical tale set in Australia. Albert, the magic pudding, can be eaten again and again and will always reform into a new pudding, ready to be eaten again. His three companions must protect him from the pudding thieves who want to steal him for themselves. This new edition includes letters from Lindsay to his publishers. It is a beautiful keepsake. Age recommendation: a keepsake for gift giving. Reading level 8+. 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 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. About the Author: Norman Lindsay is widely regarded as one of Australia's greatest artists, producing a vast body of work in different media. He is perhaps most famous for his children's classic, The Magic Pudding, but also published numerous other books for adults.
