To us she is May Gibbs, creator of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie.

But to her family, she was known as ‘Mamie’

Mamie loves to sing and dance, and to play with the fairies and pixies and elves who live in the woods … She loves her life, but it’s turned upside down when her family moves from the green fields and rainy clouds of home to hot skies and dusty plains. 

Will Mamie ever find new fairy friends in this strange, new place?

Read, illustrated and written by the brilliant Tania McCartney, Mamie is a charming and magical book that celebrates the life of renowned children’s author and illustrator May Gibbs.

Viewers will be entranced by the story and pictures, and can discover how Tania created the illustrations for Mamie and more about Tania McCartney herself by looking in our ‘More videos’ section.
