Author: Coleen Salley

First line: Epossumondas was his mama's and his auntie's sweet little patootie.

Why you should read this book: A sharp, southern-fried riff off the Grimm Brothers' "Clever Hans," this is the story of a diapered opposum who takes instructions literally without adapting concepts to situations. Good fun for kids who will enjoy feeling smarter than the title character while laughing at his mistakes.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't suffer fools gladly, no matter how adorable.
