Summary

From the bestselling author of Guess How Much I Love You, Sam McBratney

When Little Roo wakes up, he just feels grumpy. His mother tries everything to make him feel better, but nothing she does makes any difference.

Until...she finds the perfect hole. How will a deep, wide, and muddy-at-the-bottom hole make Little Roo smile? Well, Mom always knows best!

From Sam McBratney and Charles Fuge comes a story perfect for parent and child story time that will guarantee a smile and a laugh from even the grumpiest reader.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "McBratney (Guess How Much I Love You) introduces a joey named Little Roo who is "feeling grumpy and he didn't know why"?and, as all mothers know, nonspecific malaise is the hardest to dispatch. Everything Little Roo's mom does to cajole a smile out of her son?a tickle, a toss in the air (for which the book's orientation momentarily turns vertical), a game of hide and seek?fails. But when mom, with her joey tucked into her pocket, mistakenly bounces into a mud hole ("slippity... slippity... slide and... slop!") and gets "soaking wet and slimy from the tops of her ears to the tips of her toes," Little Roo finds himself grinning from ear to ear (even though he's mud-soaked, too)?because, as all kids know, there's nothing funnier than a grownup with her dignity askew. Fuge's (Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball) kangaroos are wonderfully expressive: when Roo's mother is finally at wit's end, she grasps her recalcitrant offspring firmly under the shoulders and regards him nose-to-nose with sourness worthy of the Grinch. McBratney convincingly conveys a youngster having a bad day, but the narrative unfortunately is not as spare here as in his previous works. Instead it spells out every iota of the action ("She gathered up some dry leaves, tossed them into the air and all the leaves came down on Little Roo"). Ages 2-6. (Apr.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information."
