Pub: 9/95. *****Base's terrific tale, set in the Australian outback and filled with koalas, wombats, bandicoots, kookaburras, and other peculiarly Australian wildlife, is now a pop-up. Fans of the original book will enjoy the pop-ups as Base's story is brought to 3D life. Full color.

Gr 1-5 Tall tales should start from a believable base, and Grandma is sufficiently eccentric and spirited to convince readers that she just might ride a kangaroo around town and dine with emus. Children will be delighted by her many strange adventures, shared with a menagerie of Australian animals, in this beautifully illustrated story-poem. Best known for Animalia (Abrams, 1987), Base alternates between subdued sepia-toned line drawings and richly colored, very detailed illustrations that burst the boundaries of oversized, double-page layouts. Realism and exaggeration are blended almost perfectly and complement the poem's humor. This is a good choice for group use, as children will enjoy trying to find Grandma in several scenes. Certainly not an essential purchase, but a fun way to meet Australia's unique animals and an exciting new illustrator. Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Public Library, Tex.
Copyright 1988 Cahners Business Information, Inc.From Publishers Weekly:
Graeme Base gives an old favorite new life with the abridged, pop-up version of My Grandma Lived in Gooligulch. Pelicans flap their cardboard wings while wombats, bandicoots and Australian wildlife pose in pictures. Missing from this adaptation, however, is the key naming the animals in the illustrations (Abrams, $19.95, 18p, all ages ISBN 0-8109-4288-7 Dec.).
