Carla the Cassowary has gone away and left her partner Calvin in charge of minding their egg. Calvin does a wonderful job until the day a lisping goanna comes along. After a while the wily goanna tricks Calvin into getting off the nest and quick as a flash he steals the egg for his dinner. Oh no what is Calvin going to do. Is he going to be able to get his egg back before Carla comes home?
A silly little story about a couple of Australian animals that rarely get featured in children’s picture books. There is plenty of rhyming text for a 4-5 year old. The illustrations are detailed and appealing.
