Josephine Wants to Dance

From the award-winning team behind Pete The Sheep comes another hilarious tale of a bush animal you'll never forget. Josephine is a kangaroo - who loves to dance.

When a ballet troupe comes to the sleepy town of Shaggy Gully, Josephine learns that there is another way to dance - ballet. As the ballet company prepares to perform, Josephine sneaks into town to peer through the window as the dancers rehearse, watching for hours and hours as they perfect their routine. The Josephine goes home and practices all night, all alone, until she knows the dance by heart. She spun, she swirled and pirouetted dreams... and at the end she always curtsies. She desperately wanted to dance like the ballerinas in pink tutus and silk ballet shoes! On the day of the first performance the ballet company was in trouble: the prima ballerina twisted her ankle and the understudy had a splinter in her toe! Who could dance the lead role? Who else could leap that high? Josephine's talents are called upon to help save the day.

Can she do it, and more importantly, does it matter that she's a kangaroo?

A delightfully funny tale that looks at the importance of believing in yourself and realising your dreams.
