Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Despite a good-natured warning from an adult in a beach chair, "If you keep digging like that...you'll go right through to Australia," Nicholas keeps on shoveling. Suddenly, kangaroos, dingos, koalas, camels, wombats, kookaburras, platypuses, cockatoos, and wallabies emerge from the hole and proceed to create a chaotic beach scene. The text is not that inventive; yet, largely because of Clement's energetic drawings and playful page layouts, the book succeeds as a summer romp. Young listeners, particularly those who have spent time at the beach, may well regret that "in the last orange light of the sun, all the animals returned to the hole." The book includes an appendix for children needing a brief introduction to the featured Australian animals.Kathleen Whalin, Greenwich Country Day School, CT
