06 July - 06 July


For over 30 years Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted children and adults alike and Monkey Baa is thrilled to be creating a brand new adaptation of this timeless Australian classic.

Grandma Poss uses her best bush magic to make Hush invisible so that Hush won’t be eaten by snakes.

Hush has lots of adventures but then there comes a time when Hush wants to see what she looks like again.

But Grandma Poss has trouble finding the magic to make Hush visible again.

Eventually, Grandma Poss remembers that “it’s something to do with food. People food. Not possum food.”

So she and Hush set off on an adventure around Australia to find the food that will make Hush’s dream come true.
