This is a very cute collection of short tales featuring an awesome possum and his friends that live in Nannycatch Meadows. The simple but adorable illustrations, sweet characters (aside from grumpy Uncle Possum) and the names of the various places in The Great Forest (Grotty Bottom, Boogle Hole, and Cringle End, to name a few) come together to create a charming story that would be a great bedtime read aloud for young children.
