Product Details


A bit darker and edgier than standard picture-book illustrations of animals, the digital artwork is distinctive and handsome in its own way. A fine companion volume to Saxby and Byrne’s Big Red Kangaroo (2015).

Byrne’s spiky digital illustrations perfectly display the emus’ hairlike feathering and their awkward-looking flightless movement, along with the rough textures of the grasses and trees in the landscape.
—The Horn Book

Byrne’s exquisite digital artwork feature Emu and his brood in their grassland habitat.
—Literacy Daily

The handsome and eye-catching digital illustrations show how this unusual Australian bird spends its time. The description of the emu’s protective nature is found on one page and additional factual information on the facing page, making this an interesting selection for a science classroom library.
—Literacy Daily

Chock full of interesting information and facts about what a typical emu might experience in its day-to-day life, the book is full of thrills, chills, and a species that gives stay-at-home dads everywhere a true animal mascot.
—A Fuse #8 Production (blog)

A strong choice for the 590s.
—School Library Journal
