About the Book

TO US SHE IS MAY GIBBS, CREATOR OF SNUGGLEPOT & CUDDLEPIE.

BUT TO HER FAMILY, SHE WAS KNOWN AS 'MAMIE'.

In a land far away, where fairies, pixies and elves live deep in the woods, a baby girl is born. Her parents call her Mamie.

Mamie loves to sing and dance and paint with her magical woodland friends. Her days are like a fairy tale.

But when Mamie's family move to Australia, she misses green fields drenched with rain. The hot skies and dusty plains of her new home turn Mamie's world upside down. Will she ever find new fairy friends in this strange and beautiful land?

From the talented Tania McCartney comes an exquisite book that celebrates the life of renowned children's author and illustrator, May Gibbs.

Biography

If she could, Tania McCartney would live inside a book, and as an author, illustrator and editor-she kind of already does. Tania has 30 years' experience in magazines and publishing, and has 40 books in print or production. In 2013, she reconnected with her love of illustration, and her first self-illustrated book was published in 2016 (Australia Illustrated, EK Books). She has gone on to produce several illustrated maps and books, including Mamie, a picture book on the life of May Gibbs (HarperCollins, 2018). The founder of Kids' Book Review and the 52-Week Illustration Challenge, Tania's books have been published in nine countries and she has received various awards including several CBCA Notable books, the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award and the CBCA Laurie Copping Award for Distinguished Service to Children's Literature. An ambassador for the Chief Minister's Reading Challenge (ACT), she is a fierce advocate for juvenile literacy. Tania has lived in France, England and China, and currently lives just outside the ACT with her marvellous family, a forest of artwork and a mountain of books.    www.taniamccartney.com
