Sally Morgan writes and illustrates some of her best short stories in this amusing and entertaining compilation.

The witty stories, with a folktale feel, are based around a host of characters which are Australian animals, non-native animals, spirits, planets, the sun and moon, and humans. The first story is the title story The Flying Emu where a beautifully-coloured emu learns about vanity and immodesty when he and his friends race to the sun.
