Description

'Mama, why don't I have hair on my tail?' Epossumonas asks. Mama knows why - and her story's a doozy. It goes way back to Epossumondas's great-great-grandpa, Papapossum. When hungry Papapossum and his growly ol' stomach meet up with wily Hare, cranky Bear and a persimmon tree - well, it's one hair-raisin' adventure!
