If I Had a Kangaroo (If I Had A...Series) (Hardcover)
From the award-winning duo behind If I Had a Dinosaur comes this humorous and imaginative celebration of kangaroos.
Have you ever given any thought to what the perfect jumping pet would be? Wombats are cute, and koalas can cling, but what about a springy kangaroo? Being an ace on the trampoline is a breeze when you have a kangaroo for a pet, but hold on to your stomach during the school run—it’s pretty bumpy being bounced around in a pouch.
In this charming, rhyming bedtime story, a young protagonist imagines what it would be like to have an outrageously impractical pet. Laugh-out-loud details in Alex Barrow’s bold, graphic illustrations, along with Gabby Dawnay’s sweet text, make If I Had a Kangaroo a soon to be favorite in the If I Had A...series.
