A modern kids classic
on 30 October 2005
The animals down on Buttercup farm are feeling uneasy. There's a new animal coming to the farm... a kangaroo! The problem is none of the animals knows what a kangaroo is, and so they dream up scenarios whereby each of their places on the farm would be redundant... what if the kangaroo gave milk for instance? ... what would become of the cow? The farmyard residents get so caught up in their 'what if-ing' that they don't realise all the baby animals have wandered off. Just as panic sets in, and the search is underway who should come bounding over but the kangaroo? Her special feature is then revealed... she's got a big pouch to carry babies in... and inside it are all the missing children of the farm animals!
A lovely story which is great for kids to think about the different things animals can do on a farm- a cow gives milk, a sheep wool etc. and to learn about baby animal names! They'll love it! The illustrations are top-notch too!
