Peep! Peep! Peep! Possum opened one small eye. What was that noise? Snug and warm in the midst of his winter's nap, Possum is roused by a small peep, peep, peep. In cranky morning fashion he is determined to find out who has so rudely awakened him. He and his friends, a bear, a muskrat, and a couple of catbirds, who also want the racket to stop, search high and low for the mystery peeper. Soon, though, with the sun shining down warm on their feathers and fur, they realize it wasn't so bad to be rousted out of bed after all.

Anne Hunter grew up in South Florida and now lives with her family in the hills of rural Vermont where she can hear the crickets, who sing with the frogs, who listen to the distant hoot of an owl. Anne is known for watching the squirrels, listening to the insects and writing about the natural world around us. She has written and illustrated many children’s books, including Possum’s Harvest Moon, which reviewers described as "a sensational selection," with illustrations that are "beautifully rendered" and have "a hushed mystery."

The endearing pin-eyed, pointy-nosed possum introduced in Hunter's debut, Possum's Harvest Moon, returns to inaugurate the spring in this charming tale. An infernal racket has awakened nature's creatures from their winter hibernation, and Possum, along with a pair of catbirds, a cranky bear and a muskrat, sets off to discover the source. "Peep! Peep! Peep!" sounds the wake-up call on this first warm day of spring as the animals venture through a woodland and swamp that are bursting with sunlight and budding flowers. While Hunter's previous book explored the woods' nocturnal landscape?swathed in crosshatch shadow and moonlight?here she washes the pages with watercolors in a cool palette of avocado greens and shimmering yellows. Double-page spreads carry readers over landscapes of newly sprouting grass and along the edges of blooming marshland, and within each, Hunter displays her whimsical sense of size and proportion (e.g., an extreme close-up of a toothy bear muzzle confronting the tiny peeper culprit). Yet the animals remain true to their habitat: when the peeper urges everyone out of bed ("Time for breakfast! Tea and toast!"), they commune around a lily pad of curled green morsels. Hunter scores again as she trumpets in the season, rousing her entrancing characters from a long rest. Ages 4-8.
