“An unusual...cast of animal characters makes this whimsical, charming story stand out.” —Kirkus Reviews
A platypus who thinks he is an emu finds his way home with the help of his friends in this classic, tender picture book from Annika Dunklee and Brian Won.
When the stork drops an egg before delivering it to its parents the little animal’s first words are EEE-MOO. So, a cow, pig, horse, and other furry friends who watch him hatch decide he is an emu and Australia is his home. Good friends that they are, they offer to help him get there. So EEE-MOO’s journey begins, and along the way he meets a cast of other animal friends who guide him to the open arms of his family. But when he gets there, he realizes something is missing.
