One Cool Kangaroo

by Mike Dumbleton

Russell’s father was a wildlife ranger, so Russell knew all about looking after joeys. But nothing could have prepared Russell for this Super Joey. Award winner Mike Dumbleton has written a rollicking tale of an extraordinary chase. Who will end up with Super Joey: the Russell family? The zoo? Researchers at the university? Or two unlikely criminals who see ‘money on legs’?

One Cool Kangaroo is a wild read about a wild kangaroo. At a deeper level it is about responsible care, fame and exploitation.
