PreSchool-Grade 2–From the minute she wakes up to the minute she falls asleep, an effervescent kangaroo dances through her day. DANCING Matilda,/DANCING queen,/DANCES to the sloshing/of the washing machine!/DANCES like a BUTTERFLY–DANCES like a BRIDE–/DANCES till her daddy says to DANCE OUTSIDE! The youngster even capers in her dreams as she envisions taking a curtain call filled with roses from her adoring fans. The endearing Matilda is oblivious to everyone and everything around her, including mud puddles, laundry hanging to dry, and the postman. Murphy's lively and colorful illustrations are a perfect complement to the hopping and bopping verse and its spunky heroine. Pair this energetic offering with books about Katharine Holabird's Angelina Ballerina (Pleasant Co) or Patrica Lee Gauch's Tanya (Philomel) for a pirouetting good time.–Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT
