Introducing a new kangaroo character–McGillycuddy! A young read–aloud from popular picture book author Pamela Duncan Edwards.
McGillycuddy is new to the barnyard, and the other animals have never seen a kangaroo before. They try to figure out what McGillycuddys do: Make milk? Grow wool? Lay eggs? No, McGillycuddy can't do any of those things, but she can scare away a threatening fox who is looking for dinner!
Pamela Duncan Edwards's lively read–aloud text is just right for preschoolers. Sue Porter's energetic drawings provide an adorable introduction to barnyard animals.

PreS–When a kangaroo arrives at the farm, the other animals wonder what she can do. Although she tries, McGillycuddy can not make milk, grow wool, lay eggs, or cock-a-doodle-doo. However, she can hop, jump, bounce, and kick, and that's just how she saves the day when a fox tries to eat a duckling for supper. The expressive faces of the characters in the richly colored illustrations lend warmth and action to a story that is predictable from the beginning. An acceptable supplemental purchase.–Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA
