By John Lithgow
Young Sue really doesn't like being a kangaroo, so she goes off to find something better. First she tries climbing the trees like a koala, but that doesn't work. Then she wades into the sea like a platypus, but that's no good either. Finally, Sue joins up with some bouncy, jouncy wallabies...and discovers that being a kangaroo isn't so bad, after all.
A fun tale for story time told in an appropriately bouncy rhythm. Includes a CD of the actor/author telling the story as well as an instrumental version to help enliven a read-aloud.
