Author Info
Mem Fox
Raised primarily in Rhodesia, Mem Fox wanted to be an actress before becoming an author of books for children. Her first book, POSSUM MAGIC, was published in 1983. In addition to her books for children, she has also written teaching guides and other nonfiction materials. In 1990 she received the Dromkeen Medal, an Australian award for overall contribution to children's literature.
Praise
"In its antique, folktale look, and in the descriptions of the birds' subtle shifts toward antagonism, the book turns Fox into a contemporary Aesop and aptly demonstrates that the roots of war can thrive in a pond of gossip."
