"G'Noo the Baby Roo's First Christmas" was first conceived of as a holiday bedtime story for my children. There is even an audio recording of the original story which I made for them back in the late 1990's. Eventually, it evolved into a stage play intended for young audiences. "G'Noo" is a short children's play about a young kangaroo, known as a "joey", who sees humans celebrating Christmas by exchanging presents but isn't quite sure what to make of it. Eventually, G'Noo asks her parents about the holiday but they aren't quite sure what it's all about, either. The play focuses on what would happen if there were no human around to teach animals what Christmas is all about. How would these animals interpret a "Christmas" beyond its religious significance? However you celebrate the holiday season, please enjoy your time with "G'Noo the Baby Roo" and may all your holidays bring you nothing but joy.
Mr. George Morris stood with his arms folded on the bulwarks of the steamship City of Buffalo, and gazed down into the water. All around him was the bustle and hurry of passengers embarking, with friends bidding good-bye. Among the throng, here and there, the hardworking men of the steamer were getting things in order for the coming voyage. Trunks were piled up in great heaps ready to be lowered into the hold; portmanteaux, satchels, and hand-bags, with tags tied to them, were placed in a row waiting to be claimed by the passengers, or taken down into the state-rooms. To all this bustle and confusion George Morris paid no heed. He was thinking deeply, and his thoughts did not seem to be very pleasant. There was nobody to see him off, and he had evidently very little interest in either those who were going or those who were staying behind. Other passengers who had no friends to bid them farewell appeared to take a lively interest in watching the hurry and scurry, and in picking out the voyagers from those who came merely to say good-bye.
