Welcome, Wallaby! Excerpt:

In the cozy Ahway Island Forest, a bright, beautiful morning was just arriving. The trees stood tall and proud. Their leaves whispered in the gentle breeze. Sunbeams danced through the leaves, painting the ground with patches of light.  In one of these patches, Wynne Wallaby and her mother were just waking up and beginning their day.

The little wallaby was snuggled in her mother’s hug when the morning sunbeam tickled her tummy. Feeling the warmth, Wynne stretched. Wynne extended her four paws and her tail to their full length. Then she hopped up so she could nudge her mother’s nose with a cheerful good morning kiss. Wynne’s mother smiled at her eager little girl and stretched as well. Now that both wallabies were awake, they could enjoy breakfast.
