When hungry Papapossum and his growly ol' stomach meet up with wily Hare, cranky Bear, and a persimmon tree ... well, it's one hair-raisin' adventure! Renowned storyteller Coleen Salley and Caldecott Honor illustrator Janet Stevens team up again, drawing on the Uncle Remus tradition and their own wild imaginations to expose a hilarious--and important!--moment in possum history.
