Synopsis

The Opossum's Tale by Deborah L. Duvall, Murv Jacob

Have you ever seen an opossum, hurrying across the road with its eyes and coat shining in your headlights? Or hanging upside down from a tree? Or lying on the ground 'playing possum' as if dead? And did you ever wonder why the opossum acts this way?

In this seventh volume of the Grandmother Stories, Si-qua the Opossum brags constantly about his tail until his neighbours can stand it no more. Something must be done about him! The prideful Si-qua is overcome by loss and despair when his outer beauty is suddenly gone. But an unexpected ally helps Si-qua discover powerful abilities within himself that will soon win the true admiration of his friends.
