Kathy’s Newest Book!

Pudgy Possum meets a strange creature that he has never seen before. His new friend, Peter Porcupine, inspires a big idea for staying safe from Felix Fox. Will his idea work? Only time will tell.


Conversation between a possum and porcupine leads to an adventure of recognition.  The characters have their own unique traits that are important to their survival. The alliteration in language and the use of natural environment illustrations create a simply told story that engages young readers.  A social and science read with a happy ending.
