    A great book with wonderful wording When everyone goes missing Epossumondas decides to take things into his own hands But when he is going back he finds out how everyone disappears He takes matters into his own hands and saves the day This book is funny and has a great line that the kids can say with you Sody Sody Sody sallyraytus I like this book because I read it to a class when I observed last spring and the kids' faces lit up when you make the book come alive

    3 stars Copyright 2006 Genre Fantasy Theme do not eat baking soda Favorite part of the book was when the giant snapping turtle swallowed too much baking soda and exploded Would use this in my future classroom when exploring the fantasy genre

    I grew up with my Grandma reading “Epaminondas” to me so when I found this fun spin off of that I had to get it I read it as a read aloud to my 2nd3rd graders awhile ago and they loved it

    This is a Southern tale about trying to get baking soda for making buscuits on Epossumondas's birthday Mamma sends baby gator and auntie to the store to get baking soda or the term the book used was sody sallyraytus but they were both eaten by a great huge ugly louisiana snapping turtle Mamma eventually goea herslf and is also eaten up The story ends with epossumondas defeating the snapping turtle and saving his mamma auntie and baby gator In this story heroes come in a small package and the good guy win over the big mean turtle When i picked this story off the shelf i had no idea what it was going to be about or how it was going to fit into traditional literature the only reason i grabbed ti was because it had the little castle on the side Even when i was reading this story i could not figure out what fairy tale it was representing or what traditional story it was derived from At the end of the story there was an authors note and in it she explained that variations of this tale have been told for generations sody sallyraytus is a southern term for baking soda and this story is set in the Laural Valley of Southern Louisiana The Authors note was definately a helpful tool for me and this book would be good for teaching about differetn cultures and lifestyles in the classroom

    OH my if you have not discovered the Epossumondas books you simply must I've just read my first one Epossumondas Saves the Day It is as charming as fun picture books get This southern tale of Mama and her diaper wearing possum Epossumondas is filled with words that will make young audiences smile like skedaddled meanders catawampus galumphed and southern terms like sody sallyraytus the term for baking soda Janet Stevens's illustrations are perfection even patterning the character of Mama after the author herself Coleen Salley Introduce your young ones to Epossumondas you won't be sorry And if you don't read this book to your children with a southern accent for the voices of Epossumondas Mama the huge snapping turtle and others you have totally missed the boat I can't wait to read this to my grandkiddlies when they come for their next visit

    The characters in this story are different from any of the other stories I’ve read because a human character is the mom and the son is an animal I thought this was weird and after reading the first page I wasn’t so sure if I would like this idea The language was well crafted The term “sody sallyraytus” was used for baking soda and from the author’s note it says this was an old Southern term There was also use of a simile that said “That little possum was getting as nervous as a long tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs” The text also includes uniue descriptive words such as “galumphed” “dawdling” “lickety split” and “skedaddled”

    Another great read aloud that I love to share with the SMS FridyBoyz One reason that I love these books sooo much is because I was fortunate to have the opportunity to hear Coleen Salley share these books aloud herself What a treat AND THEN she autographed them and allowed me to have a picture made with her She was SO cool When you see Mama in Epossumondas you see Coleen Salley She lives on in the books she created

    Epossumondas' friends and family disappear into the belly of a mean old ugly snapping turtle after leaving the store with the baking soda needed for his cake Can he save them and his birthday party? This feels like an old fashioned folk tale with a satisfying plot and engaging characters Illustrations are excellent as usual for Janet Stevens

    I have never uite understood these books until I listened to this one on audio love the reader's Louisianan accent Never realized this title is based upon the sody sody sallyratus tale of old which usually is my favorite one to read to Kindergarteners I will have to use this version next time
