About the Story

Think possums are pretty cute, huh? The discovery of this one in the school playground might change your mind...


‘The Sandpit’ from Little Lunch is a classically ‘yucky’ tale from one of our most unique and animated children’s authors, Danny Katz. In his life before writing, Danny was a performer – and it shows in his enthusiasm.


Warning:
We recommend that you DO NOT watch this tale during breakfast, lunch or dinner. All that talk of dead possums combined with Mitch Vane’s ‘yucky’ illustrations might leave you feeling queasy...
