Josephine Wants to Dance by Jackie French


Josephine Wants to Dance by Jackie French

Josephine loves to dance. She adores nothing more than bouncing with the brolgas, leaping with the lyrebirds and swaying with the branches in the trees. However, Josephine is no ordinary dancer...she's a KANGAROO! From the award-winning creators of Diary of a Wombat and Pete the Sheep, comes this hiarious and charming tale of one determined dancing kangaroo. When spying through the window of a ballet class one day, Josephine gets her chance to show the world just what she can do! Against all the odds, with her tutu flying behind her, Josephine gets everybody swishing ands swirling, prancing and bouncing for an evening nobody will ever forget!
