Description - The Emu Who Ran Through the Sky: Book 2 in Tales from the Bush Mob by Helen Milroy

Age range 6 to 9

The emus couldn't fly, but did they sit around looking sad? No! They made sure everyone knew just how fast they could run. Except for poor Lofty...

Lofty, a young emu desperately wants to win a big emu race, but he is slow and clumsy- and his first race ends in disaster! But, Lofty realises there is another way to win the race. He enlists the help of his Bush Mob friends Eagle, Sugar Glider and Bat- who are all excellent fliers- to teach him to fly. But it is Bush Mob's inventor, Platypus, who designs the Feathery Paraglider that allows Lofty to win the day!
