This stunning collection includes four of the best and favourite Bottersnikes and Gumbles stories chosen from the original beloved classics.Deep in the Australian bush live some very strange creatures.Bottersnikes make their homes in rubbish heaps. They have green wrinkly skin, cheese-grater noses and pointed ears that go red when they're angry - which is most of the time.Gumbles are happy little creatures who can be squashed into any shape without being hurt. They're clever and resourceful except when they go giggly.
