‘The truth is, I’m not at all proud at having produced this little bundle of piffle.’ – Norman Lindsay to his publisher, 1918.

It seems everyone is about having dessert before their mains, because 102 years on, The Magic Pudding has never been out of print. Celebrate Norman Lindsay’s birthday with us as we explore the life and world behind the creator of this Australian children’s classic.
