  • (3/5)
    A great book to use if you are learning about Australia and specific foods.
  • (5/5)
    Classic Australian Childrens Fiction, sweet and with beautiful illustrations
  • (4/5)
    A possum is invisible so that he can sneak around other predators without being seen. One day he realizes he doesn't want to be invisible anymore, he wants to see what he looks like. His grandma remembers the revers spell has to do with eating, so they travel to different countries to make the possum visible again.

    When Grandma Poss uses her Bush Magic to make Hush invisible, the little possum has many amusing adventures: being squashed by koalas, riding down the backs of kangaroos, and hiding (as her grandmother intended!) from snakes. But when she decides that she wants to see herself again, Grandma announces that the cure lies in eating human food, of... some kind. And so the pair sets off around Australia, eating Anzac biscuits in Adelaide, Minties in Melbourne, and Vegemite sandwiches in Darwin...A picture-book travelogue/fantasy featuring two of the most adorable didelphine heroines in literature, Possum Magic is an Australian tour-de-force, and one of two titles that author Mem Fox and illustrator Julie Vivas worked on together (the other being Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge). The story is engaging enough - I liked the inclusion of so many uniquely Australian treats - but it is the artwork that really makes the book! Vivas' creatures are amusing, endearing, and simply delightful; her scenes magical and involving! Highly recommended to all young readers who appreciate magical stories, animal stories, or Australian stories!

    This is a book that would be good for children who are at an early childhood level. It will help children learn about animals in Australia and about different Australian cities. It is a magical book that has a cute story line, and children will love it.

    I think of Julie Vivas as the principal author of this book. It is her illustrations that make it work so well.

    Three stars for being a decent story for little Aussies, mentioning Perth and lovely pictures.Deduct half a star for featuring an S word.

    An Aussie classic about a baby possum who travels around Australia trying to find a cure for her invisibility. A lovely touching story that any child will delight in.

    A gorgeous classic. Baby possum travels around Australia trying different Ozzie foods to try and cure his invisibility. Makes me hungry.

    This is a sweet story about grandma possum and how she tries to protect her grandchild. The grandma possum puts a spell on her grandchild to make her invisible so no other animals will harm her. The little possum later wants to see her reflection, so the two possums search for a cure and end up with a happy ending.

    Children will really enjoy this book. It would be wonderful to use when studing fables. You might even be able to do a unit on fabls from around the world. You might also talk about how a possum in Australia and a possum in the US are different. Kids will really enjoy reading this story.

    This is a book about a grandma who makes Hush the possum invisible. She uses magic to make him not visible. At first, Hush and all the other possums thought it was cool how he could go anywhere or do anything and no one could see him. Afer a while, Hush decided he wanted to see what himself looked like so he asked grandma to turn him back to normal. Grandma had to search for the magic cure to turn him back. They went to several places in Australia until they finally figured out how to turn him back. Hush was then visible and very happy. I would use this book for children in kindergarten or first grade.

    Actually a pretty good story about a little possum who's grandma has made him (or her) invisible - mostly to protect him from snakes. But now he wants to see what he looks like and grandma can't quite remember the spell to make him visible again. Grandma Poss and her grandchild travel all over Australia eating human food - since the spell definitely has something to do with human food - until the child is fully visible again. My first grader liked seeing the map of Australia at the end with the cities (and foods eaten at each) highlighted.

    Set in Australia. Two possums travel to various cities and taste Aussie food, searching for a way to make the invisible young one turn visible again. Whimsical, an interesting way to learn a little Aussie geography and culture.
  • (5/5)
    Lovely book with beautiful illustrations. It's nice to know that Vegemite is useful for something.

    I liked the art in the illustrations, but I did not like the drawings - seemed a bit scary.
  • (5/5)
    I loved this book for a few different reasons. First, I loved the illustrations in this book and found them to be very fitting and enhanced the story. The illustrations allowed the reader to see the main character Hush both as visible and invisible. Without the illustrations the audience wouldn’t get as much enjoyment out of Hush’s adventures. Additionally I love the language that was used in this story. The reason for this is that the author tied in a lot of Australian words into the story which made the story more entertaining to read because of its uniqueness. Additionally, the readers were able to learn new vocabulary while reading the story. In my opinion, I would say the overall message of this story was to stay positive even if things don’t go the right way.

     Very...original. The illustrations ruined it for me, but the story was adorable.
