This lilting, fun picture book exploding with energetic drawings is a riff on folk tales of old. Author Daniel Bernstrom's debut, with shades of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, is perfectly suited to Brendan Wenzel's colorful, animated illustrations. Storytime readers will find much to do in this imaginative eucalyptus, eucalyptus tree. - Maureen
