Read full description of the books:



This is two books in one: a poetic rendering of a platypus' life cycle, with beautiful illustrations. In smaller print are scientific facts about the fascinating platypuses. By asking a question in the beginning, and then tying it together with the silhouette image of a little boy and his fisherman father on the last page, a feeling of proximity with this exotic animal is created, and I liked that. The problem with the book is trying to read and enjoy both the story, the art and the facts all at the same time, and I would suggest not to, rather leave the factoids for a second reading of the book, in order better to enjoy the text. Although not in rhyme, the the text has a hint of lyricism here and there, but if one starts reading the fine print it will never take off.
This is an interesting little book, and it rather stands out compared to the typical non fiction platypus book, in the same way that I enjoyed for instance New Questions and Answers about Dinosaurs
