Oh, No Mister Possum! has a gentle conservation message and is so funny that your children will ask you to read it to them over and over again.


Awesome book, kids love it and ask for it all the time. They soon learn very quickly that a possum is a friend to Australia and a pest to New Zealand.


It's my son's favourite book!!!

Great for kids who are hard to motivate, everyone gets involved in telling off those possums!! Loved at kindy and at home here.
