A Possum's Tail, Hardback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


A Possum's Tail follows Samuel Drew and his toy dog as they make their way to visit the possums at London Zoo.

Disappointed that the possums are asleep, Samuel turns around and heads back the way he came, unwittingly surprising onlookers who notice that the possums have decided to follow him.

Written in charming rhyming verse, children will delight in spotting the differences between street scapes as Samuel Drew walks to and from the zoo.

A Possum's Tail is a humourous caper that beautifully illustrates the richness of cosmopolitan London.

Sam and his toy dog stroll past London landmarks on the way to the zoo where they are unwittingly joined by a quintet of possums on the way back. Simple, quirky fun. Charming, nicely detailed illustrations.
