About the Author

Emmy Payne comes from a family of published authors and began writing her own stories as a young child. She has also written more than twenty mystery books in collaboration with her mother, Christine Noble Govan.


Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.

This is a really delightful story book illustrated by H.A. Rey, who also created the beloved Curious George books. In the same fun-loving and colorful style, the story of Katy, a mama kanagroo with no pocket for her baby, comes to life. Katy searches high and low and interviews many other kinds of animals to try to find a way to carry her baby, Freddy. In the end she gets some great advice and finds a solution that is pure genius. The story is really cute but H.A. Rey's utterly charming illustrations make this into a treat that should NOT be missed. The details of the various animals are so jolly, the faces so expressive. The pictures just exude happiness. I believe that once you share this with a little one it will become a family favorite.

This book is right up there with my other favorite children's book, THE COUNTRY BUNNY WITH THE GOLDEN SHOES. It features a wonderful mother up against serious odds, a patient child and a very kind person who helps them. My son loved this book and I bought it recently to read to my 4-l/2 year old neighbor. It amazes me that no one I know (except my son! ) remembers it!

Katy No-Pocket is a cute story about a mother kangaroo who does not have any pockets to carry her baby, so she searches the town and country to find a solution to her problem. My four-year-old loves the story and asks me to read it over and over. It is just a charming tale without any violent or scary situations.

I'm buying this book for my child because when I was little it was one of my favorite stories. I hope that he will love this story of a mother kangaroo and her baby as much as I did when I was young.

I first encountered Katy No-Pocket back in the 1960's as a second grade teacher. Katy, a poor mother kangaroo with no pocket for her baby, was a big favorite with my students. They especially enjoyed all the unsucessful efforts to carry him with no pocket. Now I am introducing my grandchildren to Katy and Joey. They love animals and animal stories. This book is just the ticket.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mathew A. Shember VINE VOICE on February 8, 2006
Format: Paperback
This was a surprise when my daughter picked it out. I had forgotten this wonderful story from my childhood.

It's a great story about the troubles of Katy as she can't carry around her kid since she has no pocket. She goes on a quest seeking the advice of other animals and eventually goes to the city to find a pocket.

Surprisingly, my daughter got concerned about the end and what will happen to other animals as Katy put them into her new pockets. The pictures of the kangeroo crying might bother some rather sensitvie children but overall it's a wonderful story that will be requested to be read several times.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book to add to my collection of books to be used in my zoo unit. I teach first grade and I'm always on the lookout for books to add to my classroom library. This one is really a good one to use for teaching fiction/nonfiction since it has a fictional story along with some facts about kangaroos. Thanks!!!!
