Publisher's Summary

Fans of E.B. White and Dick King-Smith will adore this heartwarming and funny animal adventure by the award-winning author of Counting by 7s.

Mama has trained up her baby possums in the ways of their breed, and now it's time for all of them - even little Appleblossom - to make their way in the world. Appleblossom knows the rules: She must never be seen during the day, and she must avoid cars, humans, and the dreaded hairies - sometimes known as dogs. Even so, Appleblossom decides to spy on a human family - and accidentally falls down their chimney! The curious Appleblossom, her faithful brothers (who launch a hilarious rescue mission), and even the little girl in the house have no idea how fascinating the big world can be. But they're about to find out!

With a tight-knit family and a glimpse at the world from a charming little marsupial's point of view, this cozy animal story is a classic in the making.

    Story
    "Simply sweet and wonderfully entertaining!"

    This is a truly tender story about friendship in the most unlikely places, and the value of family. Dustin Hoffman's fantastic performance makes this book extraordinarily special. My seven-year-old boy loved the story as well as I did. There were a few times where I had to pause the story and explain what was happening, but most children around his age should enjoy and follow the storyline. Absolutely worth the price , I highly recommend this audiobook!!

    "Awesome Appleblossom the Possom!"
    If you could sum up Appleblossom the Possum in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, captivating and heart-warming!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author gave excellent perspectives of all characters! So imaginative and creative!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Appleblossom dressing herself in Izzy's stuffed animal clothing was hysterical!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You will never think of possums in the same way again!


    Any additional comments?

    Dustin Hoffman's portrayals were superior!
