Little kangaroo is upset because his mother’s pouch, which used to be so comfortable, is now all knobbly. He goes walkabout and talks to other marsupials who offer him their pouches, but they don’t feel right. He has a scary moment with a dingo before returning to his mother, who explains that his new baby sister is in her pouch, but there is room for both of them. He is about to get in, when he realises that he likes to be able to bounce and jump and be free, so he says his sister can have the pouch to herself.
