A hungry snake. A beautiful brown boy. What more can a young reader ask for? National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson
With its striking cast of forest creatures, One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree is Daniel Bernstrom s amusing and original tale of a plucky little boy who is gobbled up by a giant snake.
Consuming his victims at an alarming rate, this snake doesn t realize that his captives 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 maybe 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."
