'Y Boced Wag' by Eurgain Haf
Mae Cadi'r cangarw yn teimlo'n drist. Mae ei phoced yn wag ac mae eisiau ei llenwi. I ffwrdd â hi felly ar antur fawr i chwilio am ei hapusrwydd gan ddod ar draws anifeiliaid sydd eisiau ei helpu a'i thwyllo...
Cadi the kangaroo is feeling sad. Her pouch is empty and she needs to fill it. Off she goes on a big adventure to search for her happiness, meeting lots of other animals on the way... she awakes the following morning to find a young kangaroo in her pouch, having hopped in to find shelter and warmth.
