Publisher's Summary

Fans of E.B. White and Dick King-Smith will adore this heartwarming and funny animal adventure by the award-winning author of Counting by 7s.
Mama has trained up her baby possums in the ways of their breed, and now it's time for all of them - even little Appleblossom - to make their way in the world. Appleblossom knows the rules: She must never be seen during the day, and she must avoid cars, humans, and the dreaded hairies - sometimes known as dogs. Even so, Appleblossom decides to spy on a human family - and accidentally falls down their chimney! The curious Appleblossom, her faithful brothers (who launch a hilarious rescue mission), and even the little girl in the house have no idea how fascinating the big world can be. But they're about to find out!
With a tight-knit family and a glimpse at the world from a charming little marsupial's point of view, this cozy animal story is a classic in the making.
