Description

A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, professional storyteller Coleen Salley was presented the Flicker Tale Children's Book Award for Epossumondas, her signature variation of an old southern folk tale. Epossumondas is the joy of his mama and auntie. But, as his mama is fond of saying, he doesn't have the sense he was born with! Listeners of all ages will delight in this humorous tale of a precocious young possum who keeps getting himself into more and more mischief.

Professional reviews

"In this engaging "noodlehead" story, young Epposumondas just can't manage to bring gifts from his aunt home to his mother. "You don't have the sense you were born with!" he hears frequently. No matter what his friends suggest, this poor possum just cannot get it right. He carries butter home in a hat and drags a loaf of bread home by a string. But by the end of the story, Epossumondas has the last laugh. Cynthia Darlow narrates with gusto. In a nasal tone she is a well-intentioned but hopeless "sweet, little patootie." She has an animated, loving drawl as mother or aunt, and a wide repertoire of voices for each of the animal friends. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
