This book is ideal for children ages 3 - 7. It teaches the important lesson to be true to who you are, and your people will find you. You never know who's life you're affecting so stay positive and let your joy radiate around you! Xan is a possum unlike any other. She loves to sing loudly and isn't nocturnal. She is a joyous little creature and doesn't hurt anyone (possums are actually very peaceful animals!). However, one day she gets into terrible trouble and must accept a new friendship to save the day! This new friend changes her life! A good friend is always right around the corner, even if you feel lonely, so keep your heart open. Listening to your family may be wise if they are advising against danger, but sometimes you have to look beyond even your family to find the people who appreciate you for who you are.
