Opossums fool predators by pretending to be dead. If an enemy really needs convincing, the opossum will even blow bubbles of drool out of its nose or squirt a smelly green liquid from its rear! What animal would want to eat something so gross? These are just some of the fascinating facts kids will discover as they explore the world of these tricky creatures. Large, eye-popping photos and clear, grade-appropriate text engage emergent readers as they learn all about the unique and gross ways opossums protect themselves. A section in the back of the book profiles another animal that protects itself in a similar way, to help reinforce the concept of defense mechanisms.
