A beautiful new edition of C.J. Dennis’ classic tale of rhyme and things that go bump in the night!

Hist! … Hark!
The night is very dark,
And we’ve to go a mile or so
Across the Possum Park.

Three children cross the dark and gloomy park to get home.
Will they make it before their imaginary fears come to life?
