One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree is a whimsical story of a very clever boy who gets eaten by a snake.

The boy is out and about when a snake gobbles him up. The boy does not panic. Instead, he devises a plan to get himself free. That involves having the snake eat many other creatures. One by one, the snake eats creatures in the jungle near the eucalyptus tree. The boy keeps egging the snake to keep eating. Meanwhile, the snake gets so full he can't eat another bite. The boy's plan has worked.

David Bernstrom creates a wonderful new story. It features a sweet, beautiful brown boy. At the end of the day, it could be any boy on a wild adventure. The story feels familiar, like The Jungle Book with very modern twist.

The artwork by Brendan Wenzel helps set a classic folktale mood. The dark images set in the belly of the snake are contrasted by the bright pops of color in the jungle.

One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree is a great new addition to any library.
