Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Epossumondas is the silliest, most lovable possum south of the Mason-Dixon line. In his fourth book, will he still be his mamaandrsquo;s sweet little patootie if he heads into the swamp, just where Mama told him not to go? After all, the swamp is home to the fearsome and legendary loup-garou! Epossumondas isnandrsquo;t a naughtyand#160; possum, but he sure is forgetful, and into the swamp he goes. There he meets all manner of scary creaturesandmdash;but are any of them the loup-garou? And will he ever make it home to Mama? Maybe he will, as long as he remembers to do what possums do best: play possum.

Review:

"In the late Salley's last picture book, the fourth to feature Epossumondas and his Mama, Mama warns the possum to steer clear of the swamp because the dreaded 'loup-garou snatches [possums] right up with its big ugly claws!' But Epossumondas follows a butterfly into the eerie swamplands, where a series of threatening animals pass by Epossumondas, who plays dead. Rich with Southern flavor — when Epossumondas returns from the swamp, Mama exclaims, 'You don't have the sense you were born with! You gotta run away from those fearsome critters, too!' — it's an immersive piece of storytelling. Ages 3 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
