KPE Episode 95 -"Possums2U" by Vince Ford

Mele V from Room 17 has been reading this book and Mele T, another Year 6 student, interviews her. The stories of Vince Ford are great favourites and in this episode we see some familiar characters back again. This time they are making money in the holidays trapping possums. And this couldn't possibly happen without a lot of adventures and excitement along the way.... When Davin hears about earning money trapping possums, the gang organise a camp way out on the boundary beside the river, where they can set their traps. In spite of their planning, the possum trapping venture doesn't go the way they hoped. They're told a 1080 poison drop will take place across the river from their camp. Then the rain starts, and becomes a downpour causing a landslide that blocks their way out. That's when they meet up with Oil Harnett and his brother, Scuz.
