Why Epossumondas Has No Hair on His Tailby Coleen Salley
Synopses & Reviews
Epossumondas has a very important question: "Mama, why don't I have hair on my tail?"
And wouldn't you know it, Mama can tell him exactly why possum tails are all pink and naked and funny looking. Her story's a doozy! It goes way back to Epossumondas's great-great-grandpa, Papapossum. When hungry Papapossum and his growly ol' stomach meet up with wily Hare, cranky Bear, and a persimmon tree . . . well, it's one hair-raisin' adventure!
Renowned storyteller Coleen Salley and Caldecott Honor illustrator Janet Stevens team up again, drawing on the Uncle Remus tradition and their own wild imaginations to expose a hilarious--and important!--moment in possum history.
Epossumondas learns his great-great granddaddy's hilarious role in possum history.
Renowned storyteller Salley and Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Stevens team up for this follow-up to their "Epossumondas," drawing on the Uncle Remus tradition and their own imaginations to expose a hilarious and important moment in possum history. Full color.
