Book Review - The Peculiar Possum by Tracey Hecht and Tracey Hecht

Tobin, Bismark, and Dawn are all nocturnal animals. They love to look for pomelos to eat at night. However,  while searching for their beloved pomelos, they encounter strange sounds and smells in the valley. Shortly after, an unfamiliar animal appears which causes Bismark to become upset.  He finds their new friend to be very peculiar.

The easy to read chapter book shows the characters learning acceptance, being different, being yourself, and the importance of sharing. The book was easy for children to follow along. As well, as being able to read a few lines by themselves. I appreciated that the book contains fun facts about the animals along with a glossy of peculiar words in different languages. A great wholesome and educational book for children.
