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.
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 Amazon.com 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!
