Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

An opposum, a squirrel, a rabbit and a mouse are in the swamp trying to find a way to get to the other side.  They come across a log that spans the divide and decide that is just what they need to cross over.  

As they begin to move forward on their journey they notice a big green tail sticking out of the water and they start speculating just who owns that tail and why is it waiting so still with the rest of its body submerged. 

Opossum thinks it's a sneaky tail so in order for everyone to pass they must put their head down and pass by quietly.  Squirrel believes it is a scary tail that can easily be intimidated.  Rabbit decides it's a mean tail and he knows just how to deal with meanness!!!  Little mouse watches his friend's foolish reactions and comes to his own humble and sensible conclusion.  

The illustrations are so perfect and the expressions of the four little swamp rats are hilarious.  The text is simple and the twist at the end is great!  Kids will love it.  I really enjoyed the book and highly recommend it.
