A little girl and her favourite dress dream of an extraordinary life. They enjoy simple pleasures together on a beautiful Greek island. They watch the sunset, do chores, and pick wildflowers on the way home.
One day, the dress and the girl must leave the island and immigrate to the United States. Upon arrival, the girl is separated from the trunk carrying her favourite dress, and she fears her dress is lost forever. Many years later, the girl – now all grown up – spots the dress in a thrift store window. As the two are finally reunited, the memories of their times together come flooding back. While the girl can no longer wear the dress, it’s now perfect for her own daughter – and the new journey of a girl and her dress begins.
Featuring lush illustrations, The Dress and the Girl is a stunning picture book about memory and the power of the items we hold most dear.

Now in a slipcase to celebrate the centenary anniversary of its publication, The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie combines in one edition May Gibbs' much-loved classics, The Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie and its two sequels, Little Ragged Blossom and Little Obelia.
Quintessentially Australian, these delightful tales have never been out of print; indeed the fantasy world of May Gibbs has been a source of continual fascination for generations of children. May's is a world filled with fears and excitement and adventures both extraordinary and everyday. A world peopled with small creatures, where the real mixes tantalizingly with the imaginary and provides a window to the magic we all believe exists in the bush.
In this edition, all of May's original artwork has been sourced and re-scanned and the illustrations look as exquisite as the day May put down her paintbrush all those years ago. A fresh new design in full colour that is true to the original editions of these three stories makes this edition a delight to rediscover – or read for the very first time.
Included is a biography of May Gibbs that reveals her remarkable life and talent and how deserving she is to be regarded as one of Australia's most treasured illustrators, artists and children's authors.
