    1. A sparkling story steeped in Australian magic about Grandma Poss and little Hush, two possums from the country Grandma works her magic so Hush is invisible, which allows the little possum to do lots of fun things like slide down kangaroos backs and also stay hidden from snakes which is why Grandma worked the magic in the first place But one day, Hush decides she wants to be visible Turns out, human food is the only way to make it happen and, in true Australian style, it isn t until Hush starts t [...]

    2. I heard Mem being interviewed on TV a while ago She said that if you didn t have time as parents to read several books a day to your children meaning picture books, as you might imagine you should have had gold fish instead.I anxiously rang my mother the next day Did you read to us when we were that little too little to remember She reacted a bit like she d been asked if she abused us Of course we read to you when you were little , sounding a bit shocked that I d even wondered.Not surprisingly, [...]

    4. There s a cute pictorial map at the end showing the journey through including regional foods eaten and places in Australia As always, I love maps in books This is a sweet story of a possum, made magically invisible for safety reasons by her grandma, who decides she wants to be visible How this feat is achieved is great fun Even so, the story didn t really wow me, but the illustrations are very fine In addition to the fun map, there s a glossary of Australian terms in the back of the book, all th [...]

    5. Another book we had to read for school and another weird one It was included with our history lessons and we had to read it to coincide with Australia A lot of new words included with foreign animals, that make it difficult to learn because there s nothing telling us what the animal is, even though there are pictures So for example, you have a page with lots of animals and words that talk about wombats, kookaburras, dingoes, emus, and bush magic To a 5 yr old with no knowledge of these animals, [...]

    6. Update Jan 1, 2015 A delightful and beautiful illustrated Australian tale about a little possum who is made invisible and after a while doesn t want to be invisible any He and his grandmother travel throughout Australia to find the right food to turn him back It s a nice mention of various places around the continent and Tazmania, although the drawings don t really reflect that It s so cute and sweet, though, it doesn t matter and you hear about foods from different regions It s still a little r [...]

    10. Reread on 28 October 2017Read with my Turkish host family s children While a lot of this probably went over the 3 year old s head who outside Australia knows what a lamington or pavlova is , he enjoyed asking me What s that and pointing to the wombat and the koala The idea of a possum is something he still doesn t get Reading this so far away from home this time made me miss Australian culture somewhat well, maybe just lamingtonsOriginal review from 5 November 2013A charming Australian children [...]

    11. This book was absolutely precious The story of little possums, crossing the vast wilderness of Australia trying to find a magic bush that will no longer make their friend invisible any is wonderful It not only teaches children the power of working together, but it sparks the questions of what type of animal is living in Australia This is a great conversation piece for children talking about the laws of physics and whether or not people can actually turn invisible as well as a biological discussi [...]

    16. This book gives a glimpse of different cultures to children It is a fun book that encourages them to follow the story of a possum as he travels from place to place, discovering the magic in each.

    17. Possum Magic is glorious and unashamedly Australian and one of the better things to come out of the 80s It is just wonderful.

    18. To keep Hush safe from snakes, Grandma Poss uses her bush magic to make Hush invisible This book is a great introduction for children to some of the variety of aspects of Australia.

    19. I no longer have this book because it wasn t a favorite of mine, but the kids remember it, not the story, but the animals and the magic food.

    20. I used this book in a high school English course on children s picture book literature, and I must say it enchanted the older students 14 15 year olds Every high school library deserves some good quality picture books, and this would make it onto the list everywhere.It was also used with ESL students in that school, and the quality of the story telling, and the humour is such that those students never felt offended or that they were being given baby books It also helped introduce them to a littl [...]

    21. This book is one we shared for Global Read Aloud Students loved seeing the Australian animals and the magical pieces of Hush becoming invisible A favorite part was the map and explanation of the different people food in the back Students enjoyed hearing about the sweets the possums ate Fun story.

    23. I d never read this book before It has nice watercolours If I was a child I would have liked it just for the watercolours alone I expected this to be a much bigger, thicker book with far content like The Magic Pudding by Norman Lindsay, which I loved.

    24. Such a charming children s read I lived the rhyming, learning of Australian foods and geography with my youngest and about all those unique creatures mentioned that are only indigenous to Australia.We got this at the school library and I can t wait to buy our own copy.
