Readers will love this endearing picture book, featuring an irresistible kangaroo, the rustic charm of the Australian outback, and, in the end, a marsupial bundle of joy.

Polly Hopper is a curious kangaroo. She can't help but puzzle over the many wonders of life. But the biggest mystery of all is why she has a "shopping bag" on her tummy. Finally, she does realize what every little reader will already know -- that her pouch is meant for a sweeter-than-sweet baby kangaroo.

The world depicted by talented newcomer Lina Chesak-Liberace is awash in nursery-soft watercolors and deftly drawn creatures. Full of adorable surprises, this is a comforting tale of curiosity, patience, and discovery.
