"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.
