Chapter 11 - Making plans
It was a worrying time. Each day as Gatar flew overhead he saw more and more rabbits scouting the land, searching for Burra Nimu and his family. Everyone was relieved when the new eggs were finally ready to take to the children.
Keela, the kangaroo, returned from a special visit to the forest. Binni had never seen this far-away place, but he knew that in it were many strange creatures.
Burra Nimu and Gatar peered inside Keela's pouch and talked with her for a long time. Finally, Burra Nimu smiled. "We are ready. Tonight we will start the journey to the children."
Binni was so excited. He and Bindee were going too!
"If Lepus was to find you alone, I dread to think what would happen," his father had said. "At least if we are all together I can fight to protect you.
"Besides, without you and Bindee there would be no eggs to deliver!"
