San Diego Union-TribuneIf you buy one children's book for sheer fun, there's no question it should be this one.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyBeing an emu in the zoo is "frankly a bore," so Edward tries being a seal, a lion and a snake. When he returns home, he finds another emu, and his boredom is ended. Ages 3-6. (May)
Children's Literature - Jeanne K. PettenatiEdward thinks that emus are boring. So Edward tries life as a seal, until he overhears a visitor at the zoo extolling the virtues of lions. The next day Edward moves on to the lions, until someone praises the snakes. Edward finally realizes that emus are quite special when a visitor (you guessed it) says that his breed is the "best thing at the zoo." A surprise is waiting for him at his den. Both children and adults will enjoy Edward's adventures, which are relayed in verse. The book presents a new spin on the old adage, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." The rhythm of this story keeps it going strong until the satisfying outcome is reached.
