by Tom Watson

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
This is a story of a father and daughter, Lizzy, who work on a farm in Kalamazoo. The father instills a serious work ethic in his daughter - and in the animals that live on the farm. One day, Lizzy discovers a kangaroo. Her father agrees that it can live on the farm if Lizzy can find the animal a role. Lizzy succeeds, but then she discovers even stranger animals - Kangaroosters. What job will she find for them? The story is written in a rhythmic, rhyming style for the younger set. It's illustrated with boldly colored, cut-paper pictures. It is similar - both in writing style, humor and imagery - as "When Cows Fly," another book by Tom Watson that has consistently ranked in the top five for free children's stories on iBooks. You may want to get that book to see if you like the style. It is, after all, free. Tom is also the author of the popular Stick Dog series.
