Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who's Epossumondas? Why, he's his mama's and his auntie'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 you'll get. Epossumondas just might bring you a fist full of crumbs, or a soaking wet puppy, or a scruffy wad of bread--oh, you just wouldn't believe it!

Renowned storyteller Coleen Salley and Caldecott Honor illustrator Janet Stevens team up for this outrageous twist on the Southern story of the noodlehead who takes everything way too literally. (Or is that Epossumondas just pulling his mama's leg?)

Synopsis:

Southern storyteller Coleen Salley and hilarious illustrator Janet Stevens join talents in this irreverent twist on a classic tale.

Synopsis:

Mama and Auntie simply adore their pet possum and care for him with all the affection in the world, but they have to be careful what they say around him because in his efforts to please them, Epossumondas takes everything way too literally. 50,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

A retelling of a classic tale in which a well-intentioned young possum continually takes his mother's instructions much too literally.

About the Author

COLEEN SALLEY was a professor of children's literature for thirty years and now travels widely as a professional storyteller. The old tale of "Epaminondas" is her trademark; her variation on this story appears in print for the first time as Epossumondas. A native Southerner, she lives in the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana.

JANET STEVENS is the author and illustrator of many popular and award-winning books for children, including the Caldecott Honor Book Tops and Bottoms, the Texas Bluebonnet winner Cook-a-Doodle-Doo!, and the Texas Bluebonnet nominee And The Dish Ran Away with the Spoon. She also illustrated To Market, To Market by Anne Miranda, an ABBY Honor Book. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.
