The Purple Kangaroo

The Purple Kangaroo
written by Michael Ian Black
illustrated by Peter Brown

The monkey narrator in this humorous picture book guarantees that he can READ YOUR MIND. What begins as a simple request to imagine the most spectacular thing in history turns into the story of a roller-skating, bubble-blowing purple kangaroo searching for his dear friend Ernesto on the moon. So by the time you finish this book, there’s no chance you will be thinking of anything BUT the purple kangaroo.

“Peter Brown’s digitally tweaked acrylic-and-pencil artwork makes use of many comic-book techniques, including cartoon-styled figures, speech and thought bubbles, and iconic lines to convey information. the sheer silliness of these characters and situations is sure to be a hit with its intended listeners.”—Booklist
