A Possum's Tail by Gabby Dawnay, Alex Barrow (Illustrations)

Sam and his toy dog go for a walk.  They walk all the way to the zoo to visit the animals, but they don't come home alone...

Tate Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore now.

Sam especially likes visiting the possums but he doesn't notice that they have attached themselves to his dog's tail and are following him home.

Mr. Barrow's illustrations add to Ms. Dawnay's story.  He shows the route to the zoo and children will be charmed by the walk back.  Everyone stares, falls down and one lady faints.  Just watching the circuitous route Sam takes is fun.

Even more fun is how the possums get back home.  I can see a child reading this one over and over just because it's so cute and fun to read.  Take a look at it.  I bet you take it home.
