When Kangaroo visits France, he falls in love with the cancan. Back in Australia, he decides to set up his very own Cancan Cafe. But will his auditions fall flat on their face? No one seems capable of mastering the dance and so Kangaroo's spirits start to droop, but then he hears a rumour that there is someone who really can do the cancan . . .

Bright and fun, this brilliant rhyming book with its hilarious and action-packed illustrations is a delight to share and read aloud.
