#016 emily the vulture


"Emily is not your average young vulture and should not be judged by her hump. Far from a scavenging, unscrupulous loiterer, she is a fast-paced risk-taker who really likes to get things done. Having recently flown the nest, perhaps a little later than some, she’s enjoying independent decision making, from how to budget her bills to which leftovers to pack into her lunchbox. Every morning she flies off to her new job with a wave of enthusiasm that keeps her perhaps a little above the speed limit, and lands her ready to tear into the latest day." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
