Dot and the Kangaroo
Dot, the daughter of settlers in the Australian outback, gets lost in the bush. Terrified by the sights and sounds and apparent menances around her, she is befriended by a kangaroo, with whom she embarks on a journey home, accompanied by other Australian animal characters, both heroes and villains.
