The Koala Who Could by Rachel Bright and Jim Field (Orchard Books)
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 10:30 AM Labels: Jim Field, Orchard Books, Rachel Bright, The Koala Who Could
Koalas are cute, Koalas are cuddly (well sort of, I did cuddle one once and they pong to high heaven and their claws HURT!) and Koalas are quite happy when nestling in the leaves of a gum tree.
But change is a-coming and Kevin the Koala isn't too sure he likes change. This rhyming tale shows that sometimes change can be a good thing, in fact it can be a GREAT thing and even though Kevin is reluctant to embrace the changes happening around him, sometimes it's a good idea to just go with the flow, dude!
Rachel's rhymes are sublime (hey, that almost rhymes) and Jim Field's humorous animal illustrations are fab, fab, FAB! (We do like Jim a lot, he strikes us as the kind of guy you really want illustrating your animal book, he just knocks it out of the park with his hilarious animal characters, not least of all Kevin himself!)
