Possum celebrates the harvest moon with a party, but his intended guests are busy preparing for winter. Then, as the moon rises, the busy creatures leave their duties and hurry to Possum’s party for one final hurrah before winter’s long sleep.

A merry illumination of the moon-glowing, green-growing, bug-buzzing profusion of a seasonal last hurrah.
