Heart in the Pocket is a tender children's picturebook about the unbreakable bond between parent and child. An anthropomorphic mother kangaroo adores her little Jo-Jo very much; it's time for him to grow up and venture out from the safety of her pocket, but she will always treasure him. A gentle storybook brought to life with simple, heartwarming color illustrations. "Mama Kangaroo loves her Jo-Jo a lot, lot, lot. / She sings him sweet songs. / She finds him beautiful desert flowers. // And she will always hold his heart in her pocket."
