The Purple Kangaroo
Written by Michael Ian Black
Illustrated by Peter Brown
This humorous book has a monkey that claims to read the audience’s mind. It is a funny book, short, and has one awesome picture for a young baby with big eyes and a face taking up the entire two page spread.
I had fun reading it to my baby, but it didn’t offer me much more than that. He made a hilarious face at the big monkey eyes when the monkey tries to hypnotize the reader.
I think this book will be a fantastic read when my child is older. When a kid is old enough to speak and understand what mind reading is, read this one to them. It will crack them up and make your day. Until then, it is fun to see a baby’s eyes flash when that huge face shows up.
