Recommended to anyone with a storey mad toddler.
I love the rhymes. Willaby, sillaby, Jillaby, thrillaby, chillaby, wriggly, niggly. My youngest went through a 6-month phase, aged around 2.5-3yrs, of this being her favourite book. We read it *every* night, and yet I never got sick of it. By the end, I even managed to read it without falling over which is quite a feat!
Am inspired by other reviewers to try an Aussie accent, this may not work well, not one of my talents......
I tried it the next day and could see what he meant, it's a bit Seussian and tongue-twisty with quick rhymes to get your mouth around. I think practice would help though.
Our son certainly likes the story though - a young wallaby won't ride in his mummy's pouch anymore - there's an "ouch" in it. So he looks for a new pouch. But none of them are right. And some of them might be a little bit scary!
It's a tale about growing up and outgrowing things of babyhood. There's a lovely ending and it's good to see a different country, set of animals and some new terminology (billabong).
Liked the partnership with illustrator Garry Parsons, bright and cheery Australian pictures. Good for 3-6 year olds. And for adult readers who don't mind getting a little tongue-tied!
