If you're a Kangaroo
through and through,
Just do what Kangaroos do.
Young Sue really doesn't like being a kangaroo, so she goes off to find something better. First she tries climbing the trees like a koala, but that doesn't work. Then she wades into the sea like a platypus, but that's no good either. Finally, Sue joins up with some bouncy, jouncy wallabies...and discovers that being a kangaroo isn't so bad, after all.
Using a jaunty waltz rhythm, actor, comedian, and best-selling author John Lithgow reassures children that they can be happy with who they are.
For listening or singing along, a CD of a John Lithgow performance of Marsupial Sue and an instrumental version is included with this book, as is the score of the song.

Review quote

"People" Charming. "Publishers Weekly" Lithgow's ebullient encore will strike a positive note with book and music lovers alike. "Kirkus Reviews" A natural for reading (and singing along) out loud.
