Synopsis

Synopsis

The tree kangaroo at the zoo would like nothing more than a baby of her own. So, when a new egg arrives via the endangered species van, the 'roo jumps at the chance to take care of it, even when no one else wants it. Soon, out comes a penguin and all the animals chip in to help because, as the tree kangaroo says, "Penguins eat fishes."  

Told in Judy Sierra's classic rollicking rhyme, and paired with Marc Brown's breathtaking folk-art style paintings, Wild About You! is another delightful collaboration from this New York Times bestselling duo that fans of Wild About Books and ZooZical will want to adopt for their own book collections.

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, May 28, 2012:
“Sierra hints at parenthood’s more trying moments, yet what resonates loudest is unconditional love…  the mixed-species adoptions quietly affirm the value of families in all their varieties.”

School Library Journal, June, 2012:
"The joyful illustrations feature the same pointy-faced animals as in the two previous books… Fans of Wild About Books (2004) and ZooZical (2011, both Knopf) will flock to this one as well."

Horn Book, July/ August, 2012:
"Children will love one spread in particular in which the baby animals are hiding but can be spotted by observant eyes… this is a good choice both for group sharing and as a loving bedtime story."

Kirkus, May 15, 2012:
"In lively rhyming couplets that beg to be read aloud, Sierra's zoo animals are back, this time proving that it takes a village zoo to raise children… Bright colors and bold patterns fill the pages, but the true stars are the animals, whose mutual affection shines through on every page."
