--School Library Journal A visually arresting portrait of a species.
--Publishers Weekly The narrative arc will keep [readers] engaged and perhaps inspire further research. ... Appealing in subject and presentation, this will be a welcome addition to primary-grade nonfiction collections.
--Kirkus Reviews This clearly written book has expressive, sophisticated charcoal-and-digital artwork that is very different from the cartoonlike illustrations in most picture books involving kangaroos. An interesting combination of a matter-of-fact fictional narrative and facts.
--Booklist Its prose moves effectively from casual to poetic, and the close time frame keeps things immediate.... The digital and charcoal art is simply stunning
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Allows readers to extrapolate from a single animal to the entire species.
--Horn Book A lyrical text and stunning illustrations created with charcoal and digital media tell the story of Red Kangaroo.
--Literacy Daily The earthy colors and texture-rich landscapes depict the Australian wilderness with an original style that invites understanding and piques curiosity.
