Victoria, a young kangaroo, is sick and tired of sharing her mother's pouch with umpteen other items: cacti, a goldfish in a bowl, keys, coathangers, a book...the list is endless! So she takes drastic action by hopping around her friends asking if she can live with them. She tries living in a tree with the Koala family, in a burrow with the Rabbit family, and in a nest with the Goose family before realising there's no place like home. But when she bounces back to her mother, she's grown too big for the pouch - and her place has been taken by a baby brother! All three kangaroos hop off happily into the sunset together.
