Follow a dominant male kangaroo as he leads his mob in search of food - and holds his own against other males who vie for his role. Follow a dominant male kangaroo as he leads his mob in search of food - and holds his own against other males who vie for his role. In the centre of Australia, the sun is setting over the baked earth, and Red Kangaroo stirs from his rest. It's breakfast time, and Red must lead his mob of kangaroos off to find grasses for grazing. But Red is also on the watch for young male kangaroos who are ready to challenge him and try to take his place as leader. Striking illustrations set the mood for a compelling, fact-filled story of red kangaroos in the wilds of Australia. Includes an author's note and an index.
