"The simple narrative and repetitive text can't be said to possess incantatory qualities, but they do convey an instant familiarity, warmth, and mellow humor, as do Dodds's (Grandpa Bud, 1993) earth-toned, cartoon illustrations. (Picture book. 1-4)"
This sturdy book designed for toddlers comes with an equally sturdy story about a young kangaroo that skips the most important meal of the day and is haunted by the absence of food in her belly.
