Daisy was swinging back and forth on her branch as the sun
sank behind the horizon. The sky was filled with red,
yellow, orange and pink as the sun disappeared. The possum
usually slept during the day and went out to play and eat
She tried to
unhook her tail from the branch but it wouldn't do it.
Somehow her tail was in a big knot! As hard as she tried,
she couldn't untangle her tail. She started swinging
forward and backward, forward and backward, as high as she
could. The tail stayed in a knot.
Daisy's tummy rumbled with hunger. She tried once more.
Swinging back and forth, back and forth, Daisy went higher
and higher until she was swinging around the entire
branch. Finally her tail untangled and she fell to the
ground and landed on her face. She lay still for a few
moments. She didn't know how it happened, but hoped her
tail never went into a knot again!
She brushed away the dirt and ran off to find some friends
to play with.
