Editors Note Adelaide, a kangaroo with wings, discovers that her unique anatomy and abilities bring her fame and fortune in Paris.

Spotting a little plane, she follows the pilot and has all sorts of adventures. Tired of roaming, Adelaide settles down in Paris, but longs to meet another kangaroo with wings. When she bravely rescues children from a burning building, she gets her wish. With Tomi Ungerer's classic illustrations.
