Editorial Reviews

Cindy Hardin Killavey’s warm, carefully enunciated performance brings out the delight in Dot and the Kangaroo, Ethel C. Pedley’s 1899 story about a girl lost in the Australian Outback.
When five-year-old Dot loses track of her home, a kangaroo befriends her. Dot eats berries that allow her to communicate with the kangaroo, who offers to help her back home despite her mistrust of humans. Along the way, Dot learns about humankind’s mistreatment of the animal kingdom.
Killavey’s voice conveys the wondrousness of Dot’s adventure and her kid-friendly pace will make it easy for young children to follow this adventure.

How to think Australian

Great story, a nice change from the old standards and a taste of Australian thinking. I have enjoyed this story since I was very small. I would have enjoyed this version a little more if it had had an Australian narrarator though.
