possummagic-200Today’s book is another Australian classic, and one that I forgot we owned.  Possum Magic by Mem Fox is one of those books that most Aussie kids grow up reading.

It’s the story about a baby possum named Hush who lives with Grandma Poss. Grandma Poss has special bush magic and turns Hush invisible. The story is all about Hush and Grandma Poss travelling around Australia to find the antidote to the invisibility spell.

This is a gorgeous book with wonderful illustrations by Julie Vivas and it’s full of Australian animals and images. I really enjoyed reading this book again, and so did my kids.
