Where Are You, Blue Kangaroo: 10/09/15

Where Are You, Blue Kangaroo by Emma Chichester Clark: Blue Kangaroo is missing at the zoo

Where Are You, Blue Kangaroo by Emma Chichester Clark is about Lily who loves taking her favorite toy where ever she goes, but doesn't always remember to bring him home. Blue Kangaroo, though, is getting frustrated, thinking she might not return someday. So while at the zoo, Blue Kangaroo decides he might as well just stay put and find a new home with the local kangaroos, even though they aren't blue.

Although my daughter didn't take her favorite toys around town, she did care for a pretend foster animal, a stuffed tuxedo cat named Taco. He was part of the SPCA summer camp. Children who lose track of their toy fosters, will have to look for them in the "pound" (a box) and write an apology for their carelessness. Basically, they don't want these children to grow up to be pet owners who lose their pets for irresponsible actions.

Now in the case of Blue Kangaroo, his sudden ability to move about the zoo on his own accord seemed a bit, well, out of the blue. It's like the book can't decide if this scene is the climax or the punchline.
