This is a cute little story about a possum trying to find a new home so she can have her babies. The story itself is rather sweet, and children will find themselves worrying about Polly and if she will ever find a home. My kids quite enjoyed the book and asked to read it several times. My 3 year old especially liked it. The only thing I don't like about the story is all the alliterative names. It is a rather large pet peeve of mine. Everyone uses alliterative names in children's books and it's gotten to the point that I groan when I see it. The illustrations are middle of the road for me, which is weird, because I like the cover. Some of the artwork is pretty good, and some is just okay.
