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. But then, a koala comes up with a surprising solution, and our little hero boings literally right off the page! A sweet and silly book with wonderful artwork and a pop-up surprise that will have kids squealing with delight.
