Little Platypus

Little Platypus - Nette Hilton This is the second book today about Australian animals, and I'm seeing a theme: Australian animals have a difficult time finding their place in the world. Little Platypus is born, inextricably, from an egg among other eggs into a world where nobody is like he is. He wanders here and there, attempting to be a kookaburra and an emu and a wombat, but failing miserably, until he finally comes upon a creature that looks just like him. A lovely story for children and grownups, too.
