Superb photographs and knowledgeable, accessible text combine to produce an appealing, informative book about marsupials. Subjects include opossums, kangaroos, koalas, Tasmanian devils, and numbats, and Bishop presents them all in the moment: hiding in a log, perched atop a tree, or in a four-part leap across a double-page spread with two foldouts.
