The characters in this story are different from any of the other stories I’ve read because a human character is the mom and the son is an animal. I thought this was weird and after reading the first page I wasn’t so sure if I would like this idea. The language was well crafted. The term “sody sallyraytus” was used for baking soda, and from the author’s note it says this was an old Southern term. There was also use of a simile that said, “That little possum was getting as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs.” The text also includes unique, descriptive words such as “galumphed,” “dawdling,” “lickety-split,” and “skedaddled.”
