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?
