About The Magic Pudding

Believing that children would rather read about food than fairies, Norman Lindsay cooked up a whimsical children’s book that is still loved around the world.

For 100 years ‘The Magic Pudding’ has amused generations of children and their parents with the fun and harrowing adventures of Bunyip Bluegum, Bill Barnacle, Sam Sawnoff, the Puddin’ thieves, and Albert, the cantankerous, ‘never-ending’ pudding.

Discovered in strange circumstances, Albert is a magic pudding who changes from steak and kidney to jam roll and apple dumpling in seconds. Gravy-voiced and gruff, Albert is constantly being nibbled at by his owners but never shows the damage. ‘The Magic Pudding’ features members of the Noble Society of Pudding Owners trying to protect their pudding from Puddin’ thieves. Albert is cranky, rude and gets his owners into all kinds of trouble.

Set in the Australian bush with memorable animal characters, ‘The Magic Pudding’ is the quintessential read about food, fun and adventure. It has never been out of print and has been translated into many languages over the years.

Harper Collins has released a special edition of ‘The Magic Pudding’ to celebrate the 100th anniversary. Find out where you can get your copy.
