A baby kangaroo tries desperately to learn how to jump, but can't quite make the leap. . .

Again and again she tries, with the hearty encouragement of a frog, a grasshopper, and a rabbit, not to mention his doting Mama. But instead of boinging he blomps, bloomps, and blomps.

A sweet and silly book with wonderful artwork and a pop-up surprise that will have kids squealing with delight.
