Roos In Shoes

By  Tom Keneally

Who ever heard of roos in shoes?

‘Below the ridge the roos all stood On tiptoe, shoes on lower paws, Against the normal kanga laws, That said a roo should never use A shoe.’ ROOS IN SHOES uses rhyme and humour to great effect in this delightful tale of standing up for what you believe in. The vibrant watercolour illustrations celebrate one of Australia's iconic creatures, the kangaroo, and bring the countryside to life for 6+ readers. Perfect for reading aloud.
