KIRKUS REVIEW

Author illustrator, Robin King, has written another of his light and comical fantasies about children in foreign settings. Abou lives in the village of Ismar. He brings a monstrous egg into the village. The egg eventually disgorges a baby ostrich with an omnivorous appetite. Double trouble ensues when the ostrich eats Abou's father's barbering equipment and then turns out to be female instead of male. Fairly funny but a little forced.
