Synopses & Reviews
This poignant story tells of how people first learned to surf through Malu Kangaroo, a kangaroo spirit, who carves a piece of wood and takes it to some children playing on a beach. He floats it on the water and shows them how to use it. The children learn to balance and guide the board through the waves "riding the high crests" and "flying before the crashing breakers."
"This evocative picture book saturates the senses as surely as rain does parched earth." —Publishers Weekly on Big Rain Coming
