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 dynamic illustrations, 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 perfect read-aloud and a classic in the making.
