I saw this book in the early 1990s. It's about a child and her friend, who is a creature that I think might be a possum. The possum-like family are grotesque, and have bad manners and hygiene. The illustrations were linocut or something similar, in a naive style. The message, tolerance and loyalty to friends, is not stated but clear.

  • That link shows examples of naive linocuts, for anyone who doesn't know what a linocut looks like, or what 'naive style' means. If someone has seen the book, but doesn't know those terms, those examples would help them make the connection. – user184411 Dec 19 '18 at 5:45
