    Synopsis

    Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge was the second collaboration for Mem Fox and Julie Vivas, author and illustrator of Possum Magic. First published in 1984, it was similarly an instant success, later translated into several languages and published in the US and the UK. Its classic themes and beautiful artwork have also seen it adapted to the stage as a play for children, but its enduring appeal is in the simple words of a story thoughtfully told, and illustrated with humour and understanding.#95 in  Australia's Top 100 Favourite Homegrown Reads
