Ok it's time to count the years peeps. Thirty, oh yes ... 30 years since the cheeky little possum was let loose ... and what a stir Hush caused!
Possum Magic was reprinted 10 times during the first 12 months of publication. Over one million copies during the first ten years of publication! What started out as a university assignment for Mem Fox, has evolved into a CLASSIC Australian picture book much loved by children and their carers up and down the country.
Omnibus have released an incredibly special slipcase edition to keep Possum Magic in wonderful condition.
It is ONLY available during 2013.
The slipcase is illustrated by Julie Vivas, with new cover artwork. And the book itself?
It is wrapped in beautiful red cloth with embossed silver stars. A small inlay depicting Grandma Poss pouring over her books, adds a final touch of magic.
The 30th Anniversary Edition has an old fashioned charm and feel which perfectly mirrors the book itself.
