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.
