Joey is a baby kangaroo who spends his days bouncing around in his mother’s pouch. Although happy there, he soon comes to yearn for adventure in the world beyond and, despite his mother’s admonition to the contrary, devises a plan to sneak out for a few days of fun. As he wanders, he soon comes to realize just what a perfect home his mother’s pouch really is!

Conclusion. Cute – although initially disobedient, Joey learns the wisdom of his mother’s instructions.
