"Willaby Wallaby is throwing a wobbly... He's quite determined he still needs a pouch to live in, but suddenly it's just too knobbly, wodgy, wedgy and wriggly and so he jumps out. His grumpiness leads him to seek out alternatives, but those all prove to be just as uncomfortable, or even dangerous, so eventually he runs back to mum, only to discover it's a new little sister who made the pouch seem so ouch!

Jeanne Willis revels in the language of her rhyming story - alliteration, onomatopaia, assonance - it's all there to make a wonderful story to join in with, or relish reading aloud. Large bright, funny illustrations enhance this engaging aid to learning all about becoming an older sibling."
