Why Water is Blue


In a time when Australia was beautiful, there was a tribe of emus with pink beaks just like the water. This tribe was like a family and, like all families, they look out for their children and other chicks. It was the time of breeding and being on guard for predators, for the chicks would be in danger if their dads didn’t look out for them. One of these emus was Billy and this story is about him.
