The Nocturnals: The Peculiar Possum

by Tracey Hecht

In The Peculiar Possum, The Nocturnal Brigade—Dawn, a serious fox; Tobin, a sweet pangolin; and Bismark, the loudmouthed, pint-sized sugar glider—encounter a strange animal hanging by its tail from a tree. At first, they think this animal is weird, speaks a strange language, and should be avoided, but after learning more about Penny the possum, they realize just how similar they all are. The story is told with plenty of humor while underscoring the importance of respecting differences in others—a key lesson for children in this age group.
