Katy No-Pocket


In Katy No-Pocket by Emily Payne, Katy the kangaroo is very sad because she has no pocket for her son Freddy to ride in. She goes to all the other animals trying to find out how to carry Freddy! The crocodiles, monkeys, and lions can’t help. Maybe the owl can! The owl tells Katy to go to the city and find a pocket. Katy hops all the way to the city with Freddy hopping behind her. Once she’s there a kindly construction worker helps Katy solve her pocket problem. H.A. Rey’s iconic brightly-colored illustrations perfectly capture the warmth and whimsy of this classic children’s book.
