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 the A & R 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. Ages 8+
