I is for Indonesia (Alphabetical World)

Not even purple polka-dot pajamas are enough to keep Bruno the bat from boredom—but a magical journey to Indonesia with Agus the octopus does the trick. From Krakatoa’s volcanic heights to the top of Borobudur, a 1300-year-old temple, from blue-feathered cassowaries to Buta Kala monsters, from the sweetness of gamelan music to the cacophony of Jakarta’s traffic jams, Bruno regains his sense of wonder. And when he returns home to Florida, he still carries that with him, making familiar surroundings as exotic as Indonesia. (This may be the only children’s picture book that ends with a quote from T.S. Eliot—soon to be quoted on playgrounds across the country—plus it’s bilingual.)
