Possum and the Summer Storm
This is the third Possum book by Anne Hunter. Possum and his passel of joeys face a summer storm. It wipes out their home. So Possum sets out to find a new home for his family.
Possum and the Summer Storm is a lovely story of friendship, cooperation and community. It was written and illustrated by Anne Hunter. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt published it in 2018.
The illustrations are both quirky and sweet. The story is all about Possum’s neighbors pitching in to help him and his passel build a new home. Great lessons to learn in this little book. But it’s also a fun read.
I think kids will see themselves in the scampy little joeys. I think they’ll feel the comfort of home and friends in the satisfying ending.
