Sydney: Angus & Robertson Limited, 1948. First post-war edition.The Magic Pudding is the best-loved and most frequently reprinted of all Australian children's books, and a classic of modern Australian literature. 'The book is spontaneous and alive, the illustrations reinforcing the text, and the characterisation brilliantly realised' (Muir). Angus & Robertson's initial belief that the book would appeal to children and collectors of Norman Lindsay alike has proven correct ever since. (Item ID: 1248)
