“What am I to do Mummy?” Ellie cried, her voice shaking with sadness. A great big tear ran down her beak and fell to the red, dusty ground with a puff. “I so want to fly and have fun like the other birds” she sobbed".
With loving guidance from her mum, Esmay Emu, Ellie overcomes her disappointment at not being able to fly and discovers she has a talent for dancing. Ellie takes delight in her natural attributes, and as the joys of dancing take over, she soon forgets about flying.
