Echidna happily obliges but Kanga finds her too prickly. Platypus is quick to offer, but he's so wet and slippery! Even Koala offers use of her pouch, but Kanga is a teensy bit too large.
Enter Crocodile. He's more than happy to give Kanga an open-mouthed snuggle (yikes!) but Dingo senses danger and wise old Jabiru knows just what to do.
A delightful bedtime story for wee ones, written in a classic bedtime style with rhyming text. Illustrator Cee Biscoe has created warm, toddler-friendly characters in gorgeous watercolour wash. The final, wordless illustration is my favourite.
Sure to become a bedtime fave.
