Epossumondas is the silliest, most lovable possum south of the Mason-Dixon line. In his fourth book, will he still be his mama'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 isn't a naughty possum, but he sure is forgetful, and into the swamp he goes. There he meets all manner of scary creatures--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 quote

"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
