Young readers will love this endearing story of sibling rivalry, loyalty, and lasting love.

Every night when Lily goes to sleep, she says, "I love you, Blue Kangaroo!"  And Blue Kangaroo cuddles up close to Lily and sleeps the whole night through.  But one day Aunt Jemima brings Lily a new companion, Wild Brown Bear, and Blue Kangaroo has to make room for him.  Then along comes a yellow cotton rabbit, and a wiggly green crocodile.  As more and more furry creatures join Lily, Blue Kangaroo gets pushed to the side!  Blue Kangaroo is left to wonder if Lily would even notice if he was gone.
