Strangers! Special visitors? Joey became very interested.
'What are they called?' he asked his Mumma.
Mumma whispered, 'Royals.'
'What are we?'
'We are Natives,' she replied softly.
Joey wanted to practice hopping. He wasn’t very good at it yet and he longed to travel all over Dryden Gully, just like the special visitors, newly arrived from a far-off land.
The visitors help Joey to learn about being similar, being different and being special.
