Possum Magic Celebrates 30yrs; Giveaway!

"For 30 years Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted children and adults alike. Mem Fox’s lovable characters, little Hush and Grandma Poss, together with Julie Vivas’ exquisite illustrations, weave a story of pure magic. Continuously in print since it was first published by Omnibus Books in 1983, Possum Magic has been embraced as a timeless Australian tale.  Let’s keep it in publication for other generations to enjoy!" - Scholastic

When I read this story to my children they were captivated by the beautiful pictures. I really enjoyed the story about invisible Hush and his adventure across Australia with Grandma Poss. It's a lovely read and my eldest can read it to her brothers and sister.

We actually do have some possums visiting in the evening. They love to climb the big Jacaranda tree and scurry around looking for food. The kids watch them with fascination although they do leave poo bits in the cubby house (ewwww).

In honour of this milestone Scholastic have kindly sent me three copies of the deluxe edition to give away! Just leave a comment and tell me if you've had the chance to read Possum Magic or any other Mem Fox books to your children.

Winner will be drawn April 9th 2013.


  1. Possum Magic is an absolute classic. I'd love to win a copy to be able to give it to my niece who hasn't been as fortunate to have had it read to her.


  2. I remember this story from school. When there was no stress in life. How id love to be a child again. - Bec Maguire

  3. I love Mem Fox. I read once that she said you should read to your kids from day one, I have done this and my kids love books just like I do. We all love Mem's books...

  4. I sent a copy of Possum Magic to a friend in the USA for a Christmas present for her son (same age as my daughter). SO it would make sense, I included some Vegemite and a set of family recipes for all the treats in the book. She loved it (but thought the Vegemite a bit weird). :)

  5. This looks fabulous. We just moved to Australia from New Zealand in May last year so it would be great to have a book with some Australiana in it.

  6. I cannot believe that Possum Magic is 30 years old! I love that book so much, which is a good thing given how many times it's been read in our house.....

  7. My 2-year-old son absolutely loves story time, and just like 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar', this would make a great addition to his little collection of classics! - Mrs Fares
