Elliott catches a Bug is the first story in the Wonderful Adventures of a Travelling Emu series.
In this first beautifully illustrated title we meet Elliott who lives in a shack in the Australian outback. He goes to the local school fete where he is bitten by a TRAVEL BUG.
"At first it’s not scary, there seems nothing to fear
But once the TRAVEL BUG bites, soon they’re all that you hear.
They pester and pester the people they’ve bit
The only solution's to travel and quick!"
Elliott leaves the fete and goes home to pack for his travels.
The next morning he leaves with the TRAVEL BUG hidden away in his left shoe.
Elliott the Emu is the perfect book for bedtime reading and for teachers to use in classrooms to introduce the teaching of geography.
