Praise For Epossumondas Plays Possum

"Salley’s storytelling remains peerless in this fourth tale of the adorable little possum . . . Once again, Stevens captures both characters with humor and affection: Mama with her generous mouth and flowered dress, vivid as life itself; the fecklessly crafty adventurer, pink-toed and diapered . . . With or without its enticing illustrations, a perfect story to share aloud."--Horn Book
