Introduces the physical characteristics, habits, and natural environment of the platypus, an animal found only in Australia
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Gr 3-4--Short describes the unique physical characteristics, habits, and habitat of the platypus. Color photographs and drawings are used throughout the one- and two-page chapters to amplify the narrative. An unlabeled map shows the animal's range, and a cross-section drawing of its underground burrow illustrates how it builds a dwelling for protection, sleeping, and raising its young. A description of this mammal's habitat includes a mild warning about the importance of protecting creeks, rivers, and lakes. This book provides more information than Toni Eugene's Koalas & Kangaroos: Strange Animals of Australia (National Geographic, 1981; o.p.), which has only one paragraph and two photographs about the platypus. An easy-to-follow introduction to a fascinating animal.
