   Outstanding story, amazing illustrations, so educationally correct
Wow! I can not say enough. This was enjoyed by every student I shared it with from a 16 year old to my 2nd grade class. I '' ve personally giggled out loud at my first reading and learned some fun things about Australia!
   Love and Australiana
This iconic story of Grandma Poss and Hush highlights some sweet images of Australia. It had been a wonderful favourite for my children when we lived in Australia and turned out to be a joyous gift for the children of friends here in the USA.
   Bent in half when I received it.
I received it for a baby shower, because it was my daughter's favorite story. I tried to flatten it, but it remained creased.
   Great book for toddlers
This book is written by an Australian author about a possum that is invisible. His grandmother remembers that there is a way to do this, so they travel around Australia eating different foods. Each food makes more of the Possum reappear until he is finally visible wholly. Stunningly illustrated!
   Still magic after 25 years
I've loved this book since I was a little girl. I read it to him and so far it is obvious that he has no idea what is going on, but he likes when I do funny voices and I think the pictures appeal to him. What will be interesting is that because he is raised in America, he won 't grow up with these animals or Vegemite. I look forward to sharing my childhood with him through a bit of magical supplication magic and hope that he can find it as magical as I did as a child.
   Wonderful book, Beautifully illustrated!
Beautiful book, Beautifully illustrated! I always love to buy books for children and I always want unique books and this is!

As an Australian who grew up with Mem Fox stories, I was thrilled to find it on Amazon. She loved the book and looks forward to sharing it with her daughter.
