Summary
For children; Legends about birds, emu, seagull, cockatoo, crocodile, wombat, goanna, frog, river spirit, kangaroo, budgerigar, moon, night sky. When the boastful and brilliantly-colored emu offends one too many of the other animals, they decide to take action! The result? A bird that’s no longer colorful – but is still just as vain. The emu is just one of a host of characters in this collection of funny, clever Australian folk tales that explain the creation of the world and what happened afterward. The author draws on her Aboriginal roots to create her first children’s book
