Who's Epossumondas? Why, he's his mama's and his autie's sweet little patootie, that's who. He's also the silliest, most lovable , most muddleheaded possum south of the Mason-Dixon line.
Better choose your words wisely when he's around, 'cause otherwise you never know WHAT will happen!
Why you should read it:
Author Coleen Salley's cute tale of one little possum's adventures living in the swamps of southern Louisiana brought back memories of my own childhood growing up among the Spanish moss and murky bogs of Cajun country.
Epossumondas tries hard to do what his Momma asks him to do, but he takes her suggestions quite literally which leads him into all sorts of silly messes! From learning how to carry a cake to holding a puppy and even handling a loaf of bread, the harder Espossumondas tries to listen to Momma's advice, the harder it is for readers not to laugh at what happens next in this whimsical picture book, written in the old style of a noodlehead story.
You'll laugh and shake your head at what trouble poor Epossumondas will get into next! This remake of a classic tale is a great addition to any home library.
