Anybody Home?by Marianne Berkes, Rebecca Dickinson (Illustrator)
Polly 'Possum is looking for a new home to raise her expected babies. Along the way, she meets a wide variety of diurnal and nocturnal animals. She learns how they build and live in webs, nests, hives, shells, burrows, lodges, dens, caves, dreys, and even hollows. While those homes are perfect for those animals, they aren't right for her. How does Polly find a home and will she find it in time?

This is a cute little story about a possum trying to find a new home so she can have her babies. The story itself is rather sweet, and children will find themselves worrying about Polly and if she will ever find a home. My kids quite enjoyed the book and asked to read it several times. My 3 year old especially liked it. The only thing I don't like about the story is all the alliterative names. It is a rather large pet peeve of mine. Everyone uses alliterative names in children's books and it's gotten to the point that I groan when I see it. The illustrations are middle of the road for me, which is weird, because I like the cover. Some of the artwork is pretty good, and some is just okay.
