When three different groups of kangaroos – red, blue and yellow – all come to the same watering hole, they aren’t sure what to make of each other at first. But they soon discover that they aren’t so different after all. As the three groups become one, new colours appear, and soon the roos have created a beautiful rainbow!

On the surface, this is a fun, light-hearted story about the colour spectrum, but on deeper level it is a beautiful celebration of diversity.
