About the Book

Appleblossom the Possum

Fans of E.B. White and Dick King-Smith will adore this heartwarming and funny animal adventure by the award-winning author of COUNTING BY 7S.
Mama has trained up her baby possums in the ways of their breed, and now it’s time for all of them --- even little Appleblossom --- to make their way in the world. Appleblossom knows the rules: she must never be seen during the day, and she must avoid cars, humans, and the dreaded hairies (sometimes known as dogs). Even so, Appleblossom decides to spy on a human family --- and accidentally falls down their chimney! The curious Appleblossom, her faithful brothers --- who launch a hilarious rescue mission --- and even the little girl in the house have no idea how fascinating the big world can be. But they're about to find out!
