Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Award-winning author, Kenneth Oppel has written a clever and funny story for beginning readers about Emma and her emu. . . The story is delightful and will appeal to beginning and reluctant readers."
- ResourceLinks

"[Kenneth] Oppel pens a zippy story full of surprising fun. It's aimed at a Grade 3-level reader and, while the language isn't complicated, it will be a bit of a challenge to some. [Kim] LaFave's line drawings add humour and are in keeping with Emma's free-spirited approach to life and emus."
- The Hamilton Spectator

"Kenneth Oppel has won numerous awards for his young-adult fantasy novels. With Emma's Emu he proves he has an equal talent for light-hearted comedy. Aimed at emerging readers just starting chapter books, Oppel's fast-paced prose will definitely whet their appetites for longer fiction.
Kim LaFave's hilarious black-ink sketches are a terrific match for Oppel's fine story. Highly recommended."
- Canadian Book Review Annual
