2016 was the 100th anniversary of May Gibb's Gumnut Babies and 2018 was the 100th anniversary of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. May Gibb's childhood years in Western Australia are widely credited as giving her inspiration to later create her famous stories and characters.

Join Snugglepot, Cuddlepie and Little Ragged Blossom as they go on an adventure in search of their missing bush treasures. May Gibb’s classic characters and artworks are re-worked in original tale that ingrates English and Science outcomes. Students are immersed in the story and natural environment through role-play, sensory activities and craft.
