My Family

I live with my Mum, dad, and baby brother Joey in the town of Zillaroo, Australia.

My Mum, – known here in Zillaroo as Mrs. K – is kind, caring, and cool.  She loves to surf.  In fact, she’s the best in all of Australia! But her real passion is for my baby brother Joey and I.  We keep Mum very busy, but we always have a blast.  She’s the best mum ever!


My Dad, or as everyone here calls him Mr. K,  loves to fly his bush plane and is a huge collector of all sorts of neat things.  He loves Mum and is always calling her his “sweet petunia.” The most precious object in his whole collection is his ancient wooden boomerang that was passed down from his father, Grandpa K. It’s my dad’s prized possession, outside of  Joey and I.


Joey is my baby brother.  He may not be bigger than a bean, but don’t let that fool you!  He is always the center of attention. He’s great at making messes and keeping Mum busy.   Joey just started learning how to hop and as his big brother I have a lot to teach him.


As you can see, even though we all look alike we are very different from each other. I love my family very much and I am so glad to be reunited with them after my very scary adventure in The Outback.

The Gang

Hi Mates,

Have you met my gang?

Pippa Platypus is my very best friend. She may be shy, but she surely has some serious swimming skills!  Image

Wally Wombat is so strong. With just one throw, he got my mysterious boomerang stuck in a gum tree! He feels bad about what he did, but accidents happen.


Cooper Koala is an expert tree climber who is even better at taking naps.


My mates and I love to explore and play. Ever since my dad gave me my mysterious boomerang, we have had some amazing adventures outside of Zillaroo!

Hi, I’m Zangadoo!

Hi, mates!

My name is Zangadoo Kangaroo and I live in Zillaroo, Australia with my mum, dad, and baby brother Joey.  I love exploring with my best friends: Pippa Platypus, Wally Wombat and Cooper Koala. You never know who you’re going to meet when you start exploring! Just recently I met Emily Emu and Barnaby Budgie in the Outback…the wild land beyond Zillaroo. And—crikey!—don’t even get me started talking about Corky Crocodile and Dino Dingo!

One thing you should know about me is that I have a mysterious boomerang that’s been in my family since even before Grandpa K.  Some of you Yanks might not know what a boomerang is…mine is a flat piece of wood that’s carved in an L shape, and when you throw it right, it comes back to you! Lots of my friends play with boomerangs but mine is different, it’s magical!  I wish I knew exactly how—maybe you can help me figure it out. If you want to read more about my adventures, check out the new book, Zangadoo Kangaroo and the Mysterious Boomerang. You can get it at and other places, and there’s even a color e-book version for all you readers on the go, available for Nook, Kindle, and Apple E-readers! Also keep your eyes peeled for a Zangadoo app game for iPhone and iPad coming out soon too!

Don’t forget to check back here for contests to win cool prizes, fan pictures, and more! Sometimes my friends will even stop by to say hi.

Until next time, adventurers!
