2.40 Agnes Lippo, The Kangaroo and the Porpoise, compiled by Pamela Lofts (1987)

This is one of the early generations of Aboriginal children's stories. Unlike later, more sophisticated picture books of Aboriginal stories, it does not provide detailed information on where the story came from or who illustrated it or the extent to which the compiler may have altered it.

The pictures are also fairly rough - like *Dunbi the Owl* it was illustrated by primary school children.

My daughter says it was a 'silly' story, because it is a story in which a kangaroo mother abandons the joey.
