Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A host of new titles return to earlier themes and protagonists. Lily blames her bad behavior on her beloved stuffed animal in It Was You, Blue Kangaroo! by Emma Chichester Clark, the sequel to I Love You, Blue Kangaroo! Lucky for Lily, her loyal 'roo looks the other way, then helps set things right. (Aug.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Poor Blue Kangaroo can't get a break. After Lily assures him that she will always love him in I Love You, Blue Kangaroo (1999) and he overcomes abandonment issues in Where Are You, Blue Kangaroo? (2001, both Doubleday), he is now blamed for all the child's mischievous acts. She leaves the sink running until it overflows, she dresses her cat (who gets very upset by it all), and makes her baby brother scream. Through it all, she blames her stuffed toy. Her mother then takes him away and sends her daughter to bed without him. In the end, the marsupial comes up with a plan that allows all to be forgiven and the best friends to be reunited. Clark's ever-expressive spreads filled with boldly hued watercolors aptly depict the plight of the kangaroo. This book definitely has the possibility of opening up a discussion between parents and their children on many issues, especially about bad behavior and the importance of telling the truth.-Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Lily and her beloved kangaroo (Where Are You, Blue Kangaroo, 2001, etc.) return in a tale of naughtiness and redemption. A recent spate of mischievousness has Lily in hot water with her mother until she hatches a sly plan to place the blame on her stuffed animal. Lily summarily lays each disaster-flooding the kitchen, driving the cat mad, launching her clothing out the window-at the stuffed feet of Blue Kangaroo. However, when she is sent to bed with out her best buddy, Lily has time for reflection. A remorseful note "written" by the kangaroo finds its way to Lily's mother, and the pair is happily reunited. Clark convincingly portrays Lily's relationship with Blue as interactive. Lily's misadventures are observed by the patient Kangaroo, with commentary provided by the beast that is both humorous and a foreshadowing of Lily's imminent mishaps. Clark exhibits a keen appreciation of how seemingly great ideas can turn into mini-disasters in the hands of small fry. Lily's trials and tribulations are bound to resonate with young readers, while the loving resolution is gently reassuring and affirming. The colorful, detailed illustrations reflect the beguiling impishness of Lily and contain a subtle thread of wry humor-plus smaller, comically expressive inserts that depict Blue Kangaroo's musings. An engaging cautionary tale about the importance of being truthful. (Picture book. 2-5)
