Oscar Goes Online
Gloria Eveleigh, author
Ottima, the small daughter of an African farmer, finds a baby ostrich abandoned by its mother. She names him Oscar, but despite all Ottima's efforts to care for Oscar, he stubbornly refuses to eat. Eventually Ottima goes online to identify a zoo with a mother ostrich that can adopt Oscar. After a long journey to Oxford in England, Oscar is adopted by a female ostrich Olive, and he happily begins to eat again.
