Kerry the Kangaroo started out as Kenny the Kangaroo, until I found out that male Kangaroos do not have pouches. The adventures of Kenny the Kangaroo were short stories for my daughter Emmie. We even had a theme tune! I would tell Emmie the adventures of Kenny while illustrating on an A4 pad. I decided to put the stories on paper, and hopefully one day I can have them published. .
The stories follow Kerry and Scraggy around the world helping their friends with items that they get from Kerry’s magic pouch. The books are aimed at 4 to 9 year olds although during my research older children have enjoyed them too. I have given copies of the printed books to local children and family and I have created a Kerry the Kangaroo Facebook group. encouraging feedback. Kerry and Scraggy are written with humour and as the adventures visit world landmarks, they encourage children to learn.
