Opossums deserve a reputation makeover. They've been called dumpster divers, disease-ridden trash cats and worse! These shy, gentle nocturnal animals have been underappreciated and misunderstood long enough. The whole family will love the playful rhymes, sweet illustrations, and cool factoids while learning about opossums' importance in the environment we all call home. Each page features a short rhyming poem about opposites such as day & night or scary & afraid. Fun facts are clearly separated from the poems for easy selection of age appropriate passages.
