It's a tragedy that this picture book is out of print, because it's simply amazing. Based on the actual parenting habits of emus, it tells the story of Enoch, a lazy layabout male emu, whose wife finally leaves him to look after their eggs after being frustrated and disappointed by him one too many times. To the surprise of everyone, including Enoch himself, he rises to the challenge and becomes a proud father. The story and illustrations are beautiful and humourous.

I loved this book as a child and have always remembered how the gender roles are reversed when Enoch is a lazy and unhelpful partner. Certainly a book with a strong and relevant message, perhaps now more than ever!
