Katy Kangaroo is sad because she has no pocket in which to carry her son, Freddy. While all the other kangaroo children ride comfortably in their mothers' pockets, poor Freddy has to walk. This makes Freddy sad, too, and tired! But one day Katy has an idea: why not find out how other animals carry their babies? She asks crocodiles, monkeys, and birds how they carry their children, but none of their methods seems to work. Finally, when the wise old owl suggests a plan, Katy and Freddy take off for the big city. There she finds enough pockets to carry Freddy and all of his friends!

About the Author
Emmy Payne comes from a family of published authors and began writing her own stories as a young child. She has also written more than twenty mystery books in collaboration with her mother, Christine Noble Govan.
Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
