Overview

Imagine that you are Willow the Wallaby, who has come from Australia to live in the Stone Zoo New England, and all day long you overhear young visitors talking about all the great sights to see in the Boston area. After making a list, wouldn't you want to hop over your fence and set off on a walkabout (that's what Australians call a walking tour)?

Packing her notebook, pen and anything else she might need conveniently in her pouch, one foggy night, Willow hops over the fence and begins her mission to see as many of the interesting and fun places in the city as she can over the next several days. Setting up a little tent in the Boston Garden, she begins her adventure the next day on the famous Swan Boats,right away meeting a nice little boy who tells where to go next. Taking lots of notes, Willow goes from one fun-filled location to another even ending up hopping her way through the Boston Marathon, all the time collecting souvenirs to bring back to her many friends at the zoo.

There is so much to see in beautiful Boston, it is difficult to decide where to go first; so letWillowbe your guide in this delightful book.

    Excellent read!

    I gave the book to my daughter who teaches preschool. She spent a semester in Australia in her junior year in college. Since we all grew up in Boston we have seen a good many of the sights in the book. Everything about the book is fascinating. Loved the illustrations. A real "feel good book!"
