This beautiful book is for the very young and the young at heart. It tells the story of Tah-Tye, a shy baby ’possum who is not anxious to leave Mamma ’Possum and explore the great Louisiana swamp. When he does leave, he learns about his home, the swamp, and discovers the unique skills nature has given him to take care of himself – including the ability to “play possum.”
