Description

Beloved New Orleans storyteller Coleen Salley inspired countless children to embrace the joys of reading with her riotously funny-and distinctly Southern-children's books. With the fourth book in the series, the late author presents readers with one more romp through the lively world of everybody's favorite possum. Epossumondas wants to listen to Mama, but it's so hard to remember everything. So Epossumondas heads into the swamp he was warned about-and there he'll have to do what possums do best if he is to escape trouble with the legendary loup-garou.

Professional reviews

"Does Epossumondas have "the sense he was born with"? When he disregards his mother's warning about the loup-garou (werewolf) and follows a butterfly into the swamp, one can only wonder. In his forgetful way, Epossumondas wanders along and encounters an array of swamp creatures. Cynthia Darlow's gentle Southern accent complements Colleen Salley's distinctive storytelling. Darlow hisses, snorts, and snarls with the vitality of the meanest of swamp cats, snakes, hogs, and buzzards. The repeated phrases, such as "I don't eat no dead meat," are elongated; each moniker, such as "Honey" or "Sugar," is as sweet as can be. As Epossumondas, Darlow is distinctively nasal and innocently confident. Swamp sound effects provide a realistic backdrop; an author's note about the loup-garou concludes the production. A.R.
