A Possum's Tail Book

TATE Publishing


A quintessentially British book about London-- Little Samuel Drew and his pull along dog are on a mission to cross London and visit the possums at the London Zoo. Disappointed that the possums are asleep, Samuel turns around and heads back through the crowded streets of London. Unknowingly the possums are now following him! We won't tell you the ending but there is a picnic involved and flying balloons. Luckily it all ends well in this colourful and charming story. Told in rhyming verse, it's a fun book to read.
