‘Possum by Mary Grant Bruce‘Possum

This is an amusing and realistic story of how city people adapt to country life.  A Melbourne couple, Aileen and Tom, have a sick boy, Garth, and to help his convalescence they move to a small farm in Gippsland.  Used to the easy city life, they find country living to be very hard work, but are greatly helped by ’Possum.  She is a 16-year-old girl who is immensely capable, being as good as a man at most farm jobs, and she is very unfeminine.
