Summary "All young readers who shared the adventures of Marmaduke and Margaret in ‘Marmaduke the Possum’ will be delighted to hear that when Margaret and her aunt go to spend the school holidays by the Hawkesbury River their possum friend turns up too. So Margaret has the most holiday imaginable – by day she has games and adventures with her human friends; by night she slips out to explore with Marmaduke the magic world of the bush as only the wild creatures know it. In the busy life that goes on in trees, pools, caves, and in the dark passages that wind into mountain and river bank, Marmaduke and Margaret take their part, making many new friends – Dwarf Apple and his uncle Crab Apple, the sensitive O Platypus, young Boobook the owl, Go Anna, Mr Bandy Coot and Miss Thala. The unpleasant Mrs Go Anna again thrusts her nose into everything, but she causes more laughter than trouble. The story is written with Pixie O’Harris’s unfailing imaginative insight, and it is made double attractive by her charming and characteristic illustrations." -- Dust jacket
