Yashar Update: A little bit of Possum Magic

Yashar was enthralled by this book (Possum Magic) that arrived in the post for his birthday. The illustrations (by Julie Vivas) are gorgeous and I love this story - I remember reading it when I was little too. It starts with "Once upon a time, but not very long ago, deep in the Australian bush lived two possums" and later leads to eating vegemite sandwiches in the far north of Australia and lamingtons in Hobart. So Australian and very, very cute.

I am very proud as his father. He is growing relly fast. I wish i did spend more time with him.

I love you both

What a lovely photo of father and son. I've never heard of this book but am going to search for it here in Canada.

Hey, just found you off hula 70 (I think...?).
Had to comment 'cos I LOVED Possum Magic as a kid too (my aunt sent it to me from Oz), and I've been looking for a copy here (South Africa - kinda hopeful I know) for my daughter who is 18 months.
I can see Yasher loves it - what a sweetie he is!
