Alice the Kangaroo is an epic tale of how one kangaroo, with the help of a galah, overcomes her inability to jump. After losing her mob Alice and Gary the galah invent a way for her to put the “spring” back into her hop. After some initial fails Alice heroically saves the day and is rewarded accordingly, I wonder if you can guess how? Told in rollicking rhyme this is a story about disability, determination, and bravery scattered throughout with some very Aussie humour.
