Possums are more than the ugly-cute icons of the internet. These so-called trash animals and pointy kitties are not only relatable avatars for anxious but resilient people everywhere, but nature’s secret clean-up crew.
Organized around common myths that have given possums a bad reputation, this fun and offbeat book reveals the truth about possums through dozens of adorable photos, informative illustrations, and fascinating facts.  Did you know that…

  Possums protect people and pets from disease! A single possum can eat up to 4,000 ticks per week!
  Possums excel at interspecies friendships, often sleeping in other animals’ dens.
  Possums are shy creatures: when they “play dead,” they are actually fainting from anxiety!
