KIRKUS REVIEW

.. is the complaint of Walter Possum starting at 6 o'clock in the morning when he drags his father out of bed. After making a few futile suggestions such as playing with toys and raking leaves, Father Possum gives his son a special something-to-do stone. Immediately Walter comes up with some hot ideas, and even though the stone is quickly mislaid he is still thinking up nice, wholesome projects, including presenting his bothersome younger sister with a play-right-here stick. This is a simple but pleasantly told activity story with delightful pencil drawings of the Possum family.
