Dingoes At Dinnertime

This book is about Jack and Annie helping a mother kangaroo get away from wild dingoes. While she is being chased by the dingoes, she drops her baby. Jack and Annie fine the baby in the forest. Soon after a fire starts in the forest. They run into a cave to try and escape the wildfire. To find out what happens to Jack, Annie and the baby kangaroo, you will need to read the book.

My favorite part of this book is when they rescued Joey Kangaroo because his mother dropped him and he got hurt so Jack and Annie saved him. This story reminds me of the danger in my life such as when my dad accidentally almost hit me with a vehicle. Annie reminds me of myself because we both love adventure.

I recommend this book to people who like adventure. This book is for all ages.People who like baby animals will love this book, too.
