The Duck and the KangarooA duck looks out his window and longs for friendship and adventure. So he says to the passing Kangaroo, "My life is a bore in this nasty pond, / And I long to go out in the world beyond! / I wish I could hop like you! / said the Duck to the Kangaroo." A silly and sweet friendship develops, as the duck persuades the Kangaroo to give him a ride into the wide world beyond.
