A True Texas Story About Miss Doofey, the Orphaned OPossum
Miss Doofey Opossum is an epic poem, written, designed, and illustrated by the author, Anne Boykin.
Autographed by the author, this story is true and takes place in Brazos County and Austin, Texas, and tells about the life of an orphaned baby opossum rescued by the author's brother and his best friend.
The baby was given to the author's children to raise with the hopes of releasing the opossum back into the wild. The charming and colorful illustrations help to tell Miss Doofey's story, as do the actual photos of Miss Doofey.
If you would like to have Anne personalize her autograph so you can give it as a gift, just let us know in the comments section. It'll take a few days longer but it'll make Miss Doofey Opossum even more special.
Technical information on opossums and their necessary value in our ecosystem follows after the poem. This book will delight a young audience and parents, as well.
