For more than 30 years, Mem Fox's Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted young people all over Australia.
Grandma Poss loves making magic. She makes wombats blue and kookaburras pink. She makes dingoes smile and emus shrink. But one day, when danger arrives in the form of a snake, Grandma uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible. Hush has many wonderful adventures. But being invisible isn't all it's cracked up to be, and Hush longs to see herself again. One problem. Grandma Poss can't find the spell to make Hush visible again. And then she remembers...this particular magic requires something more, something special, something to do with food...people food.
Possum Magic takes us on a whimsical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again. Joined by an extraordinary creative team, Monkey Baa brings to life the characters, journey and love that has made Possum Magic the most-loved and best-selling Australian picture book of all time.

Roald Dahl’s The Twits
Mr and Mrs Twit are the most horrible people ever to live on the stage of the earth! How unpleasant is Mr Twit, a hairy-faced, grubby and messy old man! How mean-spirited is Mrs Twit, whose once pretty face is now ugly, reflecting her consumption of nasty thoughts!
Being the delightful humans they are, Mr and Mrs Twit spend their days playing dirty tricks on each other.
Mrs Twit puts worms in Mr Twit’s spaghetti – yuck! Mr Twit convinces Mrs Twit she has the dreaded shrinks – how mean! Insults are flying left, right and centre and a tag game of revenge and trickery is never-ending.
Meanwhile, Muggle-Wump, a poor little monkey is held captive by Mr Twit. Obsessed with putting on The Great Upside-Down Monkey Circus, Mr Twit relentlessly trains Muggle-Wump to perform death defying stunts, punishing the monkey as he sees fit. Poor little Muggle-Wump.
But! Fate changes for Muggle-Wump with the arrival of Roly-Poly, a glorious bird full of grace and pomposity. Together a plot is devised to secure Muggle-Wump’s freedom and punish The Twits forever.
This is a comedy of rebellion and justice where playfulness and tricks are more successful than following the rules in this classic Roald Dahl story. It’s a super high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre.
