    Quokka does not like being cute, so he dresses up as terrifying animals and brags about how dangerous they are. The more Quokka dresses up, the more animals gather around and laugh. In his pride, the stubborn Quokka attacks a snake -- who swallows him up.

    This book reads as a playful cautionary tale that demonstrates the importance of listening to the advice of others and not being stubborn. The quirky, textural illustrations hide a venomous secret: the snake has been hiding in the background the whole time! Australian wildlife and a funny ending make this fable a great book to share.
