Salley, Coleen. Epossumondas Plays Possum. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 2009. ISBN: 9780152064204.
This fictional story is about a possum that goes in the woods and is approached by animals that eat live meat. The possum plays dead and the animals each say, "I don't eat dead meat." Finally a vulture comes and picks up the possum and the possum stops playing dead and the bird drops the possum and then he finds his owner. The illustrations are drawings that are colorful and look like realistic photos. My favorite part is when the possum is in the forest. I would recommend this book to all kids because it is a really good book.
