"Well, what do you do when a kangaroo jumps in your bed and starts to boss you around? Or a llama starts trying on your blue jeans? Or a tiger takes over your tricycle? If you're anything like the fierce little girl in this book . . . you don't stand for that kind of messing around. Or do you? The color pictures here are just great, with wonderful animals and an irascible little miss shown battling to the very end." --Publishers Weekly

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura Backman
If a bossy kangaroo jumped through your bedroom window and started bossing you around and refused to go away and then had all sorts of his other animal friends joining in, what would you do? Would you tell that kangaroo and his friends to shoo? Young children will be want to hear this title again and again with its highly comical text and entertaining illustrations and a main character who shows those bossy animals a thing or two. Children will enjoy acting out the part of the heroine and recite "You throw him out!" with much enthusiasm. This beloved author's timeless title is a fun, safe springboard for a deeper level of self-advocacy as it helps young children find their "speaking up" voice as they act out their own ways of how to deal with the annoying behaviors of others. The ending of the story gives young readers a sense of compromise with a happy ending for everyone. Reviewer: Laura Backman
