About the Book

This third installment in the hilarious and highly illustrated full-color Superpower Field Guide series features the silly-looking, surprisingly fierce ostrich. This two-toed torpedo may have the largest eyes of any animal on dry land, but it can outrun most horses!

Meet Eno, an ordinary ostrich living in the Serengeti, a corner of the African savanna. But there’s something you should know: Even ordinary ostriches are extraordinary. And that includes Eno.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that ostriches are just overgrown chickens with ridiculous necks, skinny legs, and bad attitudes. And you’re right! Believe it or not, that neck helps ostriches run at supersonic speeds. Those skinny legs can kill a lion dead. And these are only a few weapons in Eno’s arsenal of superfierce survival skillsEno has Colossal Orbs of Telescopic Vision, the Impossible Ever-Flow Lung, the Egg of Wonder, and so many more.

You’re still not convinced that ostriches are superpowered, are you? Well, you don’t know ostriches yet. But you will.

Includes a ruler printed along the book’s back side to aid the observations of young field scientists everywhere!
