 The brief text here is informative, but the color photos of the varied kangaroo clan (including the wallaroo, brindled nailtail wallaby, and red kangaroo), taken in Australia's outback, are outstanding. The pictures documenting the development of the kangaroo embryo from smaller than bean-sized to full-grown joey, poking from his mother's pouch, are especially appealing. (Nonfiction. 8-12)
