About this book

Possums are more than the ugly-cute icons of the internet. These so-called trash animals and pointy kitties are not only relatable avatars for anxious but resilient people everywhere, but nature's secret clean-up crew. Organised around common myths that have given possums a bad reputation, this fun and offbeat book reveals the truth about possums through dozens of photos, informative illustrations, and fascinating facts.

Did you know that...
- Possums protect people and pets from disease.
- A single possum can eat up to 4,000 ticks per week.
- Possums excel at interspecies friendships, often sleeping in other animals dens.
- Possums are practically immune to rabies thanks to their low body temperature.
- Possums are shy creatures: when they play dead, they are actually fainting from anxiety.

Written by wildlife rehabber and possum advocate Ally Burguieres, known for her popular Instagram account, this accessible and giftable guide explains why possums deserve our admiration and offers tips on how we can protect and advocate for these marsupials.
