Children’s book illustration/character design

Written by Leslie Heath

There once was a kangaroo in a faraway land, who thought he could jump better than anyone can.

Kangaroo thinks he is the best jumper around, a champion amongst jumpers! But, not content with being the best jumper in his own mind, he decides to challenge all the other good jumpers to a jumping match. He hops off to see who he can challenge, and takes on a horse, a cricket and a frog. But who will eventually best our kangaroo – if anyone can?
