Description - Purple Kangaroo by Michael Ian Black
The monkey narrator in this humorous picture book gaurantees that he can READ YOUR MIND. What begins as a simple request to imagine the most spectacular thing in history turns into the story of a roller-skating, bubble-blowing purple kangaroo searching for his dear friend Ernesto on the moon. So by the time you finish this book, there's no chance you will be thinking of anything BUT the purple kangaroo.

Book Review: Purple Kangaroo by Michael Ian Black - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (19 Sep 2013)
Purple Kangaroo is quite a silly and amusing book.
The book starts off with a monkey saying that he can read your mind. From here we are taken on an amusing story where a purple Kangaroo is searching for his friend Ernesto. He searches all over the place and finds him in the least likely place. The book is rather silly and may not suit all young readers.
I like the mix of big and small illustrations on varying pages, especially where we are confronted with the monkeys eyes. The story is easy enough to read and takes a unique approach with direct conversation.
