Welcome to Petey Possum’s Hangout.
On June 3, 2011 we were pleased to welcome you, our friends, to the opening of our first ever bookstore.
What is Petey Possum's Hangout?
We are a family owned and operated independent children’s book store providing books and toys for children from birth through middle school.
As parents and grandparents, we share your interest in quality books and related products for children.
Our motto: "With Reading Anything Is "Possumable".
We are dedicated to providing you with resources and products that will support you as you look for ways to help your children reach their fullest potential.
We invite you to use our blog for sharing your favorite books and educational resources with all of us in an effort to expand the benefit of our collective knowledge.
We look forward to this spirit of community with the common goal of supporting the development of the children in all of our lives.
He’s our mascot who was created by our good friend and team member, Roger Blansfield. Petey and his children can be found hanging around our store. Be sure to look for Petey and his children when you come to visit. They really are quite friendly. And, though they are not real (they are actually soft cuddly puppets), they love attention from children and grownups.
Our website is going through revisions, so please check back for more information and resources. Feel free to use our blog to share your thoughts, resources, and recommended books.
And be sure to friend us on Facebook where we will also be posting important announcements.
