"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 acompanied by magical illustrations from rising star Brendan Wenzel (They All Saw a Cat, Some Pets, Some Bugs, Beastly Babies). It has received three starred reviews and was named one of the best read-alouds of the year
