Synopsis of The Possum’s Tale

Possum is very proud. He has a beautiful tail and loves to talk about it, but he does not realize that when he does this he makes his friends feel bad. Rabbit gets angry and devises a way to make Possum stop bragging. Unfortunately, Rabbit’s way to “fix” the problem is permanent. Possum is left sad, not only because of his new tail, but because of the way he treated his friends. The other animals realize that even though their tails were different from Possum’s amazing tail, they have unique and wondrous tails as well.
