"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 to eat a Vegemite sandwich that she starts to become visible. This is a humorous and heartwarming romp through Australian geography and gastronomy with absolutely charming illustrations. A total delight!"
"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 anymore 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 discussion about the different wildlife with in the Australian outback."
