Zangadoo Kangaroo lives with his mum, dad, and bouncing baby brother Joey in the town of Zillaroo, Australia. One Saturday, Zangadoo's dad finally lets him take the mysterious family boomerang to the playground. When Wally Wombat throws the boomerang, it gets stuck in the top of a gum tree. Zangadoo leaps to rescue it...but keeps going and going until he's lost in the wilds of the Australian Outback!
This is the sometimes funny, sometimes hair-raising, sometimes heartwarming story of how Zangadoo finds his way home...with no help at all from chirpy troublemaker Barnaby Budgie. The first title in the Zangadoo Kangaroo and Friends series of illustrated chapter books! (Ages 6 & older, or younger for reading aloud)

Fun for kids
Great, short book for kids 5-10. Who doesn't love Kangaroos and Koalas? This is a cute story that includes a little mystery (around a family heirloom boomerang), a little adventure in the Outback, and youthful friendships. My nieces loved the story and the character names, especially Zangadoo - the lead character.
I will be looking out for the follow-up book. Hopefully it comes out sooner than later to keep the excitement moving forward.
