Born in Sydenham, Kent, May Gibbs (1877-1969) came to Australia at the age of four. Encouraged by her parents, May drew and painted as a child.

She went on to study Art, both in Western Australia and in England, before settling in Sydney to follow a successful career as a writer and illustrator of children’s books.

During WW1 May produced postcards depicting gumnut babies in uniform to support Australia’s role in the war, and her first books, Gumnut Babies and Gum-Blossom Babies, were published in 1916.

Her most famous book, Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, followed in 1918.

Goodnight, Gumnuts is a book in the May Gibbs Gumnut Babies series of board books for young readers. The beautiful illustrations, by Caroline Keys, are inspired by May Gibbs original illustrations. The beloved characters of May Gibbs books: Blossoms, Lilly Pilly, Baby Possums, Ragged Blossom, and of course the Gumnuts, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, all of these star. Splashing in the sun and walking a bull-dog ant, swinging and climbing, all these need to be abandoned for bedtime talk, dinner, a nice warm bath, a story, then one last giggle before laying down sleepy heads. Enchanting!
