"What do you do instead?" she asked. "I always jump to conclusions," said the Kangaroo, and she promptly bounded ten feet at one hop. Lightly springing back again to her position in front of the child, she added, "and that's why I never have a headache." "Dear Kangaroo," said Dot, "do you know where I can get some water?
