Duck overcomes "cold feet" and asks if he can ride with Kangaroo as Kangaroo hops around the world, with the two becoming inseparable friends.


Meet Duck.

Duck has a yen for travel and adventure. Duck also has some very wet, cold feet and a gift for loyalty and compromise.

Meet Kangaroo.

Kangaroo has been around the world and back, and is looking for a little bit of luck.

Or a duck.

When Duck and Kangaroo meet, it’s a match made in . . . heaven.

Ah, love—ain’t it grand?

And who so happy,—O who, As the Duck and the Kangaroo?

& Taylor

A wholly original tribute to the author of The Owl and the Pussycat, containing inspired collages incorporating images from the nineteenth century including several of Lear's own drawings, Duck overcomes "cold feet" and wins Kangaroo's heart in a story of adoration, acceptance, and adventure.
