To the ranks of “doctors” like Derek Shepherd and Meredith Gray of “Grey's Anatomy,” Henry Higgins of “My Fair Lady” and Dr. Watson of Sherlock Holmes fame, it may be time to add Doctor Roo.


Doctor Roo is perhaps the most unusual of this literary lot, being a kangaroo.

The character, also referred to as Doctoroo, has been created by a real doctor, Rachel Wellner, who has been in practice for more than 20 years and is a breast oncology surgeon.

“I’ve had her in my mind for many years. I’ve always wanted a story for children,” she says. “I felt this was a good way to connect with children.”

Ms. Wellner is out with the third book in her series about Doctor Marsha Roo.  She joins us for this Bizgnus Podcast Interview to tell why she has made time in her schedule to write this series of books.

The Doctoroo children's series follows an MD kangaroo – and her animal friends -- as they go on various adventures. The third book in the series is “Doctoroo & The Case of the Red Hot Hawaiians.”

Ms. Wellner says she created the series to encourage parents to read and teach their children about health and safety.
