Possums Are Not Cute Storytime - Ally Burguieres


Possums will be taking over the children’s room at The Garden District Book Shop May 7 for a very special storytime of Possums Are Not Cute!: And Other Myths about Nature's Most Misunderstood Critter. Possums are more than the ugly-cute icons of the internet. These so-called trash animals and pointy kitties are not only relatable avatars for anxious but resilient people everywhere, but nature’s secret clean-up crew.

Organized around common myths that have given possums a bad reputation, this fun and offbeat book reveals the truth about possums through dozens of adorable photos, informative illustrations, and fascinating facts.  

Written by wildlife rehabber and possum advocate Ally Burguieres, known for her popular Instagram account @ItsMeSesame, this accessible and giftable guide explains why possums deserve our admiration and offers tips on how we can protect and advocate for these magical marsupials.

The storytime is free and begins at 11:00 AM. Burguieres will also be bringing in some of her possum crew for kids to meet and books will be available for purchase.
