17 Emu illustrations for child's story book (for personal use not widespread)

I have written a story for my son and require 17 illustrations. The book will be for personal use only. Images need to be good resolution for a full page in a A4 size book (approx).

Images need to be cartoon-like, fun and appeal to children. The emu has a distinct feather sticking out the top of his head.

There are 18 images in total as follows:

Image 1 – cover – Emu pulling a strange face. Fully body

Image 2 – emu head shot only. Front on pulling a crazy face. This image is different to the cover image

Image 3 – Emu egg with a foot sticking out the side

Image 4 – Emu eating seeds off the ground and on old emu with bulging eyes.

Image 5 – Whirlwind with an emu foot coming out the side.

Image 6 – Group of Australian animals standing together with wallabies laughing hard.

Image 7 – Emu tripping over a wallabies leg

Image 8 – Emu face crying

Image 9 – Ball of dust with emu legs and scared head sticking out. Two wallabies kicking dirt.

Image 10 – An old friendly goanna in a cave entrance (red rocks) with a sign above the entrance ‘Dave’s Place’

Image 11 – Emu getting hypnotized by goanna’s tail (both the emu and goanna in this image)

Image 12 – Face shot - Emu with his face wrapped in long strands of grass, looking like a mummy with only his eyes still visible.

Image 13 – Emu doing star jumps

Image 14 – Emu upside down in tree hanging from his knees. He is pulling a strange face.

Image 15 – Orange sky and a platypus calling out ‘FIRE’ (no other animals need to be in the image)

Image 16 – Emu with a wallaby on his back running from fire.

Image 17 – Happy emu with three happy wallabies and a wombat

Text for story attached - please do not forward on and no use of text for any other purposes.

Please make available examples of your work.

Not required, but would be useful - a basic emu illustration (this does not need to be a finished product and can be a simple line drawing without colour to give me an idea of what the main character will look like).
