The Koala Who Could (Hardcover)
You see, high-up was safe since he liked a slow pace,
While the ground down below seemed a frightening place.
Too fast and too loud and too big and too strange.
Nope. Kevin preferred not to move or to change.

"The jaunty rhyming text and brightly colored illustrations show an amusing ensemble of animals and help lighten the message, clearly stated at the end: 'Life can be great when you try something new!' They also cleverly strike a balance between portraying the basis for Kevin's fears and showing how little he needs to fear." -- Booklist
