9780062354853: One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree

“A hungry snake. A beautiful brown boy. What more can a young reader ask for?”—National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson

A sneaky snake has no idea that the captives in his belly are planning their escape! In the spirit of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly by Simms Taback, the reader sees a cutaway of the snake’s belly and can even guess how the tale ends! Classic and contemporary, timeless and fresh, One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree has a syncopated and rhythmically delightful text perfect for reading aloud. 

Daniel Bernstrom’s debut picture book is nothing short of splendid, and is acompanied by magical illustrations from rising star Brendan Wenzel (They All Saw a Cat, Some Pets, Some Bugs, Beastly Babies). It has received three starred reviews and was named one of the best read-alouds of the year!

Product Description:

One Day in the leaves of the eucalyptus tree hung a scare in the air where no eye could see, when along skipped a boy with a whirly-twirly toy, to the shade of the eucalyptus, eucalyptus tree.

Join a shifty serpent, a clever little boy, and a disappearing cast of animals in a cumulative tale that will have children captivated.

Daniel Bernstrom's original folktale combines the delightful feel of Kipling, the musicality of Peter and the Wolf, and the fun and delight of Simms Taback, while Brendan Wenzel's sumptuous palette brings together a world of color, movement, and character that is rarely seen.

About the Author:

Daniel Bernstrom, a visually impaired writer, loves stories that have rhythm and music; stories, as Uri Shulevitz once said, "are the soundtrack to the child's silent film." This story of the eucalyptus tree came to Daniel late one night while working as a janitor at a preschool. The eucalyptus tree (a favorite of his mother's), which grows along the coast of Northern California, tickled his tongue and imagination. The animals in the tree populated the preschool where Daniel worked, waiting patiently atop the shelf at the back for the next day of play. The strange combination of a tickly word and an odd assortment of stuffed animals spawned this undulating syncopated story of impossibility, darkness, and hope.



Brendan Wenzel is an illustrator with a great affection for trees and all the furry, feathered, and scaly things that you can find in them (including snakes!). He has traveled to jungles, savannas, and everything in between in search of fascinating animals and has teamed up with many groups working to preserve wild places and creatures around the world. Brendan is the illustrator of Angela DiTerlizzi's Some Bugs. Brendan lives in New York with his wife, Magdalena.
