It’s 100 years since May Gibbs’ adorable characters found their way into the homes and hearts of Australians, and Grenfell Public Library is celebrating with a free travelling display featuring May Gibbs’ iconic artwork. May Gibbs was Australia's first full-time, professionally trained children's book author and illustrator, and the display features reproductions of some of her most beloved characters including the gumnut babies and the brothers Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. According to State Library of NSW Senior Curator Alison Wishart: “Generations of Australians have fond memories of growing up with the gumnut babies and their friends, and passed the books they read as children down to their own children.”
