How the Platypus was Made


Life for the Australian birds and bush animals at an isolated waterhole was idyllic.  After completing their regular chores, they participated in fun and games.  There were challenges, between creatures, at times with surprising results.  The peaceful life is interrupted when a storm blows a giant prehistoric parrot named ‘Screech’ into their midst.  He upsets the harmony of the bushland community.  When eggs of the bush birds hatch, baby platypuses appear instead of chicks.  How can that be?  An imaginative read about the creation of the platypus.  How did the bush birds and animals solve their dilemma with ‘Screech’?  A must-read to find out the answers.
