Moonlight and shadows, rustling in the bushes, something quietly moving overhead or eyes caught in headlights, what can it be? All these scary situations are brought about by Peter, one very cheeky possum on his nightly adventures to see how many people he can frighten. He is having enormous fun, but it’s a solitary adventure until he meets a special girl called Bridgette, whom he cannot frighten. Then the real fun begins.

Listen to Aria reading from The Cheeky Possum …
