Possum Trot is a rather shy lion. He is especially timid around dogs. He had his nose bit off once, but a new embroidered one was stitched on by his mistress* the moment the doggie slobber dried.
He adores long conversations with small children, with the help of a good-natured grown-up, of course.
He has a Very Important Outing tomorrow. He is going to Show & Tell with his boy at day school. Three-year-olds love puppets. He should be a big hit.

*When I was a little girl, my mother made Possum Trot a wonderfully real toy to me. He is only on loan to my own children.
