Meet Chops. She dreams of being a kung-fu master. The trouble is she’s a kung-fu disaster.
Her feet are too big, her arms are too small, and she’s more likely to break her head than break a plank. But when she leaves the billiabong in despair, Chops discovers that she might just be a hero after all…
Based on a true story, Kung-fu Kangaroo is for anyone who has felt the joy of finding a place to belong.
