Even in the best of times, it is hard for three friends to play together happily all the time as someone always feels left out. Such is the case when Kangaroo, Dolphin and Turtle play. There are times when Kangaroo and Dolphin play but leave out their friend Turtle. Then there are times when Turtle and Kangaroo play forgetting about their friend Dolphin. Further still, Dolphin and Turtle find games that they enjoy, however, it excludes Kangaroo. This causes each character to feel sad, mad and frustrated with their friendships. However, despite being left out of some activities, Kangaroo, Dolphin and Turtle still like playing together and learn that being friends doesn't mean always playing together all the time. They also learn to value what they bring into their triangle of friendship and to appreciate the times when they are by themselves! Told with sensitivity and humor and beautifully illustrated, Kangaroo, Dolphin and Turtle is a great story for anyone who ever had to deal with the ups and downs of having two best friends.

About the Author

Richard Thomas is a writer of fiction. He resides in Forest Hills, New York with his wife. He still counts many of his childhood friends among his friends today--although they don't get to play nearly enough nowadays! None of them resemble turtles, dolphins or kangaroos.

Shanise Ng is an illustrator and artist living in London with her partner. Her re-ignited passion for illustration is evident in this book. For this debut, she is glad the kangaroo didn't end up looking like a rabbit and she could finally pay tribute to her pet tortoise which drowned years ago in an unfortunate accident.

This is Richard Thomas and Shanise Ng's first collaboration together.
