The Purple Kangaroo

The Purple Kangaroo by Michael Ian Black
Illustrated by Peter Brown

     "Hey, kid.  Guess what? I've got a supersecret, highly unusual, incredible, and amazing magical power. I can read minds."  Love the beginning of The Purple Kangaroo!  It grabs you from the start with a funky  monkey claiming to know exactly what you're thinking.  The words by Black are hilarious and the illustrations by Brown are a perfect match.
     I had a blast reading it to my boy, he laughed the whole time.
     Viva el Señor Ernesto de Pantalones and the purple kangaroo!
