Poor Platypus from Australia is afraid of Mr. Dingo-dog and his kind because they hunt all kinds of animals. And Platypus has no kind of defense! So he asks his friends for advice and help.
But Mr. Ostrich has long legs and can run fast, and Mrs. Kangaroo can jump far away very quickly, and wise Brother Koala hides in a tree which no one else likes to eat—and poor Platypus has nothing!
So Platypus asks Mother Nature for help—but there’s a problem! See, Platypus keeps asking for more and more and more! And he won’t stop—until Mother Nature is mad because he wants too much! And that’s why poor Platypus now is “the creature that is half-animal and half-bird,” and everyone thinks he is the strangest-looking thing in Australia!
Here is the first, “original story” from the aboriginal people of Australia about the origins of this strange animal, and also a new, “original story” by me and my fascination for the platypus.
