AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Adapted from Ethel Pedly's Dot and the Kangaroo, the story concerns Dot, the young child of an outback settler who becomes lost in the bush and is subsequently befriended by a huge female red kangaroo. This leads to her travelling about the countryside in the kangaroo's pouch. The two meet a number of characters on their travels, including a platypus, a koala and a kookaburra, and have several exciting adventures before the kangaroo eventually helps Dot find her way home.
