Possum Magic’s 30th Anniversary

Possum Magic 2“Once upon a time, but not very long ago, deep in the Australian bush, there lived two possums. Their names were Hush and Grandma Poss. Grandma Poss made bush magic…”

Hands up if you love Mem Fox and Julie Vivas’ book Possum Magic?  My hand is pumping the air WAY up HIGH!

Possum Magic is one of my all-time favourite books.  I bought a copy for my children when it was first published 30 Years ago.   That copy has been loved and read over and over and over and over again.

Yes – Possum Magic has its 30th Anniversary this year – and, judging by how often our copies are borrowed from The Library – it is loved JUST as much today.

Did you know …

  • Mem Fox wrote Possum Magic for an assignment?  It was originally called Hush the Invisible Mouse.
  • Possum Magic is the best known Picture Book in Australia and the best selling Picture Book ever in this country?
  • Possum Magic has been made into a musical for children?

You can find out more about Possum Magic here … plus … Mem Fox gives you recipes for Lamingtons, Anzac Biscuits and Pavlova!  Yum! 🙂

… and for a real treat … here is Mem Fox herself reading Possum Magic … enjoy!

Do YOU have your own copy of Possum Magic?

What is your favourite part of the book?
