A bit of black humour for kids who will appreciate the tongue-in-cheek tales of Uncle Possum in the Nannycatch Meadows. Poor Uncle Possum! Or should we say: poor animal folk of Nannycatch who have to put up with him.

“If I could keep only one of these books, it would be Nannycatch Chronicles…These animal stories with a difference will appeal to any child developing a sardonic sense of humour.” TES Magazine
