July 14 to October, 2018 - IN CELEBRATION OF THE PUDDING 100 YEARS OF THE MAGIC PUDDING.

To settle an argument with his friend Bertram Stevens of The Bulletin and Art in Australia, Norman Lindsay wrote and illustrated his book The Magic Pudding. The book was first published in 1918. Norman maintained that children liked to read about food rather than fairies. In his lifetime he saw editions published in Australia as well as Britain and United States. The book has been translated into Japanese, German, French and Spanish. It is regarded as a classic of Australian children's literature.

Norman Lindsay was born in Creswick February 1879.  To celebrate 100 years of publication the Museum will have an exhibition of Norman’s illustrations for the book and other works. In addition will be toys that children would have played with when Norman was a boy here at Creswick.

During the September School Holidays in the Town Hall will be a Children’s Festival over three days.
