From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-3-Standard fare for beginning chapter-book readers. As the story opens, shy Kevin's life is touched by sadness because his inventor parents seem to have every idea taken out from under them. Things do begin to look up when Gloria, a runaway circus kangaroo, arrives on the scene. Between her clever disguises, jokes, and investigative talent, she manages to bring Kevin out of his shell, uncover the invention thief, and return happily to the circus. The author's Scottish background, as well as the kangaroo's Australian heritage, brings some unusual idioms to American readers. Lennon's extensive use of riddles and puns is just right for the audience. The quality of the writing resembles that of established beginning chapter-book writers such as Suzy Kline or Betsy Duffey. Rasmussen's fairly sophisticated black-and-white pencil illustrations convey a range of reactions to Gloria's exploits, and illuminate the absurdity at the heart of this story.
