Possum Magic Colouring-In Competition

Grandma Poss made bush magic.
She made wombats blue and kookaburras pink. 

Join The Joan and Penrith City Libraries in celebrating 40 spellbinding years of the beloved children’s book Possum Magic coming to life on The Joan’s stage 4 – 6 May, with our magical colouring-in competition! Drawing inspiration from Grandma Poss, use a variety of different art and craft supplies such as glitter, coloured paper, pom poms, crayons, and pencils to get creative and make your entry unique.
