I'm so delighted to share this special little post for Australia Day... does anyone remember this beautiful book, Dot and the Kangaroo, by Ethel Charlotte Pedley? Published in 1899, it tells the story of a little girl lost in the Australian bush and finds her way home with the help of a friendly kangaroo.
"Your eyes just now remind me of two fringed violets, with the morning dew on them, or after a shower," said the kangaroo "Why are you crying?"
"I was thinking," said Dot.
"Oh, don't think," said the kangaroo; "I never do myself."
