Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Epossumondas learns his great-great granddaddy's hilarious role in possum history.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

COLEEN SALLEY was a professor of children's literature for thirty years and now travels widely as a professional storyteller. The acclaimed picture book Epossumondas is her variation on the traditional Southern tale Epaminondas, which has been her trademark story for decades. She lives in New Orleans, Louisiana.

JANET STEVENS is the author-illustrator of many popular and award-winning books for children, including the Caldecott Honor Book Tops and Bottoms. She used her friend Coleen Salley as a character model in both Epossumondas stories and in the ABBY Honor Book To Market, To Market. Ms. Stevens lives in Boulder, Colorado.

I loved the story. I enjoyed the illustrations and I enjoyed listening to Ms. Salley talk. Very entertaining to myself and the students. They wanted to listen to it three times. They asked if we would check it out of the library at a later date. Very, Very, good book.
