"Lost and afraid in the darkening bush, Dot is befriended by a kind Kangaroo.  She eats the berries of understanding and is then able to communicate with all the bush creatures, who eventually guide her home.
The intriguing tale of Dot and her Kangaroo is told by Ethel Pedley with the charm that has made this book an Australian favourite since it was first published in 1899.  In this commemorative edition the original illustrations by Frank Mahony have been reproduced for the first time using the four colour printing process, and the mystery of the bush, which is so unmistakably Australian, comes startlingly to life."
