Novels receive sequels and series add new installments, as in Emma Chichester Clark's picture book Where Are You, Blue Kangaroo?, the follow-up to I Love You, Blue Kangaroo! Lily, the protagonist, keeps losing her stuffed toy, Blue Kangaroo, who in turn becomes increasingly anxious. The pictures reveal Blue Kangaroo's whereabouts, even before Lily realizes she's misplaced him; a particularly witty sequence shows Blue Kangaroo being passed among the animals at the zoo--he winds up in a real kangaroo's pocket.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Blue Kangaroo, first introduced in I Love You, Blue Kangaroo (Doubleday, 1999), is back for another adventure with his preschool owner, Lily. The child takes her favorite stuffed animal everywhere she goes, but unfortunately has a positive talent for leaving him on playground equipment, bus seats, and other places. When an outing to the shore is planned, the toy understandably becomes anxious. During the night, he sneaks out of bed and hides in the little girl's bathrobe pocket. After much searching and a few tears, Lily eventually finds her friend-"-and she never let Blue Kangaroo out of her sight, ever again." Illustrated with large full- and double-page bright, bold paintings bustling with activity, this book is sure to strike a chord with any child who has lost and found a favorite animal.-Doris Gebel, Northport-East Northport Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
