Product Description
Product Details


PreS-Gr 3-Based closely on the book by Mem Fox (Harcourt, 1990), this is the story about a Grandma opossum who easily turns her granddaughter, Hush, invisible at the child's request. But when it's time to reverse the spell, the duo have to bike across Australia trying various human foods until they succeed. The glossary at the end of the video explains the foreign foods (e.g., vegemite, lamington, pavlova) to American viewers. Various city names are also written onscreen when a map of Australia is pictured as the opossums bike across the country. Narrated by the author, her Australian accent is barely noticeable in her relaxed yet enthusiastic pace. The video uses the book's ink and paint illustrations by Julie Vavas as stills, but adds some animation (the magical stars flutter, a snake's tongue moves), music, and sound effects. The video could be used for storytimes in public libraries, and in classrooms for units on Australia, animals, or families.-Erin Caskey, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
