Far inland, the sun floats on the waves of a bake-earth day. Big Red and his mob of kangaroos wait for night-time when they can search for food. Young male kangaroos wait too – ready to challenge Red and take his place as leader.
Beautiful and poignant, Big Red Kangaroo is a very special story. Follow Red and his mob of kangaroos as they go about their daily life and discover their place in the natural world. Kangaroos are well-known to all Australians, but Claire Saxby's wonderfully descriptive story allows a glimpse into the often hidden natural habitat of this emblematic creature. Stunning illustrations by Graham Byrne give extra depth and emotion to the story.
Read delightfully by honorary Aussie, Olympic Rower Helen Glover, you'll feel like you're part of Big Red's mob for the day!
