This wonderfully illustrated, young and funny picture book is about accepting yourself as you are, by exploring the good and bad things about life and how they apply to everyone: the worst thing about being a kangaroo is hitting your head on the ceiling when you bounce. The best thing about beng a kangaroo is having a handy pocket to carry all your things. An hilariously funny text using child-centred activities to relate the animals experience of life to that of a child.
