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!
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?)

About Coleen Salley

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, and her new variation appears in print for the first time as Epossumondas. A native Southerner, 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 & Bottoms. She used her friend Coleen Salley as a character model in both Epossumondas and the ABBY Honor Book To Market, To Market. Ms. Stevens lives in Boulder, Colorado.
