What has two opposable toes and is the only marsupial crawling through the forests and backyards of North America? It’s the opossum! These animals are often referred to as nature’s garbage disposal, so don’t be surprised to find one munching from the dog’s dish or gulping down last week’s leftovers in the trash. Young readers will devour this fact-packed title about these creatures of the night.
