Illustrated by Bruce Whatley.
From the award-winning duo of Diary of a Wombat comes another hilarious tale of a bush animal you'll never forget.
Josephine is a kangaroo - who loves to dance. Her little brother, Joey, tells her that kangaroos don't dance, they hop - but Josephine continues to point her toes and leap through the air.
When a ballet troupe comes to town and both the lead ballerina and understudy are injured, Josephine's talents are called upon to help save the day. Can she do it and, more importantly, does it matter that she's a kangaroo?
A very funny picture book that looks at the importance of believing in yourself and realising your dreams.
Josephine wants to dance
I love this book about a kangaroo that defies the doubters and lives her dream. Beautifully illustrated and Australian to its core. I am going to buy a copy for my aunty who is a lot like Josephine. My baby son loves it too. Another great book from this author.
