A new pair of shoes!
Oh, how could he lose those brand new striped sneakers with colorful hues?
He looked in the closet and under his bed. He looked `round the room, while scratching his head.
“I must stop and think,” he said to himself. “They're not in my dresser and not on the shelf.
If Mama finds out that I've lost my shoes, we surely will feel the kangaroo blues.”
He tiptoed outside and crept down the street in nothing more than his bare, stocking feet.
No trail was left, not even a clue. Oh, where should he hunt for his kangaroo shoes?
