Product description

Adam does not like Koala. Koala is a little creepy. Adam tries explaining this to his parents. He tries putting Koala away-far away. He tries taking Koala on a long, long walk. Nothing works. Will Adam ever be rid of Koala? This darkly funny debut picture book from Sean Ferrell and Charles Santoso celebrates imagination and bravery while addressing a universal childhood dilemma: what to do about that one stuffed animal who just won't stop staring at you.

Review quote

"When I came into the store last week I found an f&g of a book coming out in April 2015, " I Don't Like Koala," sitting on my chair. "Read this one," I was told, "it's awesome." Over the next few days every staffer made certain that I had read it because it was either "awesome," "great," or totally wonderful and hilarious." Is it all those things? Of course it is.... Everyone will like "I Don't Like Koala" eventually. You see even if they are so misguided as to not like it immediately Koala will handle it himself. That's what he does with his terrible eyes and his warm, mysterious, determined heart. Terrific illustrations and a great story, what's not to like?"--Kenny Brechner "Publishers Weekly ShelfTalker, August 28, 2014 "
