One day in the Eucalyptus Tree

In an extraordinary picture book read-aloud, a plucky little brown boy outsmarts a hungry snake. Stunning, rhythmic language makes this debut sing, while the brilliant illustrations transport readers far away.

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.

A shifty serpent, a clever little boy, and a disappearing cast of animals star in Daniel Bernstrom and Brendan Wenzel?s gorgeous and lush picture book, a perfect read-aloud, and a joyful experience filled with humor and hope. Hardcover.
