Possum Magic

This truly is a must have, classic Australian book for children. A beautiful magical story about ... yes, two possums ... we really couldn't let My Book Corner go on much longer with out putting this one on the shelves.

Possum Magic is the tale of two possums.  One is invisible - but soon gets fed up with that!  To become visible again they discover he needs to eat more food, cue a trip around Australia.

They find Vegemite sandwiches in the far north, pavlova in Perth, Anzac biscuits in Adelaide ... and with each piece of food Hush gradually becomes visible again.  (It was the Vegemite sandwich which started it off .. don't tell Mr Gresty!).

With plenty of dialogue and beautiful illustrations ... there's a reason why the Australian's have such fond memories of this.

PS Take a look at Mem Fox's May 2013 release - Yoohoo, Ladybird! - you'll love it!

More Magic from Mem

We have just discovered Possum Magic at our house and my 2 year old is
requesting it over and over. A great story with countless references to Australian
places and foods.

My favourite children's book!

Possum Magic - a fun and enchanting Australian themed story that my 18 month old son requests to be read to him time and time again. I have no problems with this request, because I absolutely love this book. It is my favourite children's story and it really is magical! Another classic by Mem Fox...

Owner's reply

Thanks for your review Romina.

I've just been writing up my review of the gorgeous 30th Anniversary Edition ... it's beautiful!

My children aged 5 and under love Possum Magic! Such an imaginative, playful story that encompasses so many of the places, colours and foods of Australia.
