The Purple Kangaroo
by Michael Ian Black and Peter Brown
(Simon & Schuster, hardcover)
Recommended for ages 2-6
There are a handful of picture books that kids demand their parents read again and again each night, books whose rhythmic words and bright pictures serve more to excite than to relax before bed. Nevertheless, these are the books that kids love. Such a book is Michael Ian Black and Peter Brown’s The Purple Kangaroo.
