YR 2004 SN 0152049355 9780152049355 AB Epossumondas's mother tells him a story about how his great-great-grandfather became the first possum to have a hairless tail. Epossumondas has a very important question: "Mama, why don't I have hair on my tail?" And wouldn't you know it, Mama can tell him exactly why possum tails are all pink and naked and funny looking. Her story's a doozy! It goes way back to Epossumondas's great-great-grandpa, Papapossum. 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. Annotation. Epossumondas learns his great-great granddaddy's hilarious role in possum history.
