Description

"A hungry snake. A beautiful brown boy. What more can a young reader ask for?"--National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson

A sneaky snake has no idea that the captives in his belly are planning their escape! In the spirit of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly by Simms Taback, the reader sees a cutaway of the snake's belly and can even guess how the tale ends!

Classic and contemporary, timeless and fresh, One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree has a syncopated and rhythmically delightful text perfect for reading aloud.

Daniel Bernstrom's debut picture book is nothing short of splendid, and is accompanied by magical illustrations from New York Times bestselling and 2017 Caldecott Medal-winning artist Brendan Wenzel (They All Saw a Cat).

And don't miss Daniel Bernstrom's next book, Gator, Gator, Gator!

Back cover copy

One Day in the leaves of the eucalyptus tree hung a scare in the air where no eye could see, when along skipped a boy with a whirly-twirly toy, to the shade of the eucalyptus, eucalyptus tree.

Join a shifty serpent, a clever little boy, and a disappearing cast of animals in a cumulative tale that will have children captivated.

Daniel Bernstrom's original folktale combines the delightful feel of Kipling, the musicality of Peter and the Wolf, and the fun and delight of Simms Taback, while Brendan Wenzel's sumptuous palette brings together a world of color, movement, and character that is rarely seen.

Review quote

"Bernstrom's spritely language rhythmically sings an exciting, laugh-filled, cumulative story. Bold, large print highlights the events as the snake slides, wiggles, and twists while the animals crinkle, munch, and buzz. Wenzel's wildly imaginative, brightly hued digital illustrations are a wonderfully goofy complement to the action . . .--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
