“…Irreverent and hilarious, the ending literally garners an audible ‘awww.’” – The Australia Times
Something so fabulous just has to be magic…
When Miss Lily takes to the stage with her fabulous feather boa the timid Potoroo is filled with the feeling that she could do anything, if only the feather boa could be hers. Soon a plan is set in motion with very unexpected consequences.
Rambunctious families of koalas and wombats share the stage with the Potoroo and a dancing crocodile of incomparable glamour in this uplifting story that celebrates kindness, courage and a little marsupial pride!
