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.

    " We read a lot of this, but my husband forbid me to finish it because of the double negatives. "

    " Lucy picked this one. I thought it was going to be weird, but it was pretty good. "

    " My favorite Coleen Salley book! Epossumondas is so cute! Too bad there won't be any more...so sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nora | 9/2/2013

    " I love Epossumundas. I haven't felt the need to buy every one of his books, but the illustrations in this adventure are AMAZING! Janet Stevens uses watercolor techniques that would be great to discuss in art class, as well. A beautiful option for folk tales unit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 6/23/2013

    " Not quite as universal as the original Epossumondas, but a defintite storytime possibility "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Arendt | 5/1/2013

    " Cute story, but I did not see many "literal" plays on words, which I expected based on other Epossumondas reviews. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/15/2013

    " Begs to be read aloud with a southern accent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan P | 1/4/2013

    " So cute! Longer, so would be great for a group of older kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Libby | 10/6/2012

    " Too much text to hold my 18-mo-old son's interest, but he did like looking at some of the pictures (though never flipped through the entire thing) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcie | 5/15/2012

    " It's sad to think this may be the last of the Epossumondas collaborations by these two. I was lucky to get to hear Coleen tell some of the stories and know that Janet has done an amazing job of bringing visuals to that voice. These books are great examples of Noodlehead stories "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffrey | 4/4/2012

    " A cute story. Fun to read aloud to the kids. "

    " Love to read aloud. So much fun for me and kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari | 3/20/2012

    " The kids were silent during this read-aloud, and one even wanted to get up, because I think she anticipated that it was going to get scary. I cut the tension by having the kids do their impression of a possum playing dead, and it helped. Very cute. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth S | 8/7/2011

    " I didn't realize that this was the 4th Epossumondas book, so I was expecting some version of the classic Epamonondus (sp?) story. I'm guessing that was covered in the first book. Setting that aside, the story was fun, the pictures were great, and my kindergartener and I enjoyed reading together. "

    " This is one book I actually ENJOY reading OVER and OVER to my 3 year old. The words just roll off your tongue and it's truly fun to read. Such a loss when Colleen Salley died. I wish I could have seen her doing her storytelling. "
