This award-winning addition to the narrative non-fiction series Nature Storybooks, about red kangaroos, is now in paperback.
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.
