Read full description of the books:
Julia was intrigued by this cover when she saw it at the library so it ended up going home with us. After reading it I know I/we haven't read this exact story before but I can't help but feel I've read/heard it somewhere, at some point. With my memory who knows but Julia said it was new to her.
There's more text here than in a lot of the picture books for young children which is a blessing if you have an older toddler/young child who you're trying to get used to longer books.
The only thing negative I can say about it is that it's a little too repetitive for me and my daughter. She got bored easily with the "What do you say, do you want to play?" parts. As did I.
But everything else is great.
Joey begins gathering friends after being bored in his Mother's pouch "all day" and as each friend comes to Joey they say it's too hot to teach him their game. Eventually, Sly-tooth, a crocodile, comes around and Joey calls to him the same as the others. Sly-tooth, seeing his opening, replies in the same manner as the other animals and as such, is told by Joey not to leave.
Sly-tooth tells the other young animals his game and as they start to "play" he asks if anyone knows what game they're playing. Each animal guesses the game wrong but with very funny names which are sure to make children laugh.
Suddenly, the animals find themselves in a bit of a fix. The animals become scared until Joey comes up with one last game to play. The game that will change the entire situation around for everyone.
I'm not a huge fan of this type of illustrating but I'd be lying if I said it didn't mesh well with the story. The author also includes a short (one page) animal glossary in the back of the book with the animals name in this story, their species, class of animal,, favorite food, and special feature.
If this is the first glossary of its kind that your child has come across it could be slightly informative but if you've read numerous animal books with your child(ren) or if they like to watch animal documentaries (my daughter does and we've read tons about animals) they won't learn much. If anything.
