In this engaging "noodlehead" story, young Epposumondas just can't manage to bring gifts from his aunt home to his mother. "You don't have the sense you were born with!" he hears frequently. No matter what his friends suggest, this poor possum just cannot get it right. He carries butter home in a hat and drags a loaf of bread home by a string. But by the end of the story, Epossumondas has the last laugh. Cynthia Darlow narrates with gusto. In a nasal tone she is a well-intentioned but hopeless "sweet, little patootie." She has an animated, loving drawl as mother or aunt, and a wide repertoire of voices for each of the animal friends. A.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
