In The Peculiar Possum, the Nocturnal Brigade encounters a strange animal hanging by its tail from a tree. At first they think this animal is weird and to be avoided, but soon they realize just how similar they all are. The animal is a brushtail possum which among other things: is often called 'The little fox" (like Dawn), uses scent markings to keep others away (like Tobin) and is a marsupial (like Bismark).
Told with lots of humor, the story emphasizes how sometimes we're more alike than we appear.
Bonus Content includes Fun Facts about The Nocturnals and a glossary of Peculiar Words from different languages.

In The Moonlight Meeting, Tobin, a sweet pangolin, Bismark, a loud-mouthed sugar glider, and Dawn, a serious fox, introduce their nighttime world to early readers. The story emphasizes friendship, sharing, and humor. Includes bonus animal glossary.
