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

"In his first book for young people, Sean Ferrell ("The Man in the Empty Suit") teams up with...children's book artist Charles Santoso for a deliciously creepy tale of a child and his toy koala.... Ferrell's turning of the tables makes humor the antidote for the horror Adam feels, while Santoso's artwork assures children that Adam is never truly in danger.... A clever picture book that walks the line between humor and horror for a child afraid of his creepy toy koala."--Jennifer M. Brown "Shelf Awareness, May 22, 2015 "
