A classic children's book by award-winning author and illustrator Tomi Ungerer. Adelaide is a timeless children's story of a flying Kangaroo. Adelaide is a little bit different to most kangaroos – because most kangaroos don’t have wings. One day, brave and adventurous Adelaide leaves her kangaroo family behind and flies off to see the world… and soon discovers a thing called love. Beautifully illustrated throughout, Adelaide is a wonderful timeless story suited to many a young age.
