Description


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! 
     The renowned storyteller Coleen Salley and the Caldecott Honor–winning illustrator Janet Stevens team up for this outrageous twist on the Southern story of the noodlehead who takes everything way too literally.
