Summary, etc.:
The cassowary is a large, flightless bird. It s cute, though a bit clumsy-looking. Like other birds that can t fly to escape danger, cassowaries have defensive mechanisms that help them survive in the wild, including long, sharp claws. Their terrible kick can slice open their enemies. This high-interest book reveals much more fascinating information about this interesting bird and its life in its native habitat. Wildlife enthusiasts will love the vivid photographs of the colorful creature.
Subject: Cassowaries > Juvenile literature.
