A funny, rhyming picture book about the importance of tolerance and kindess, from the bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator, Ross Collins.
When a small, friendly platypus arrives at the zoo, the animals assume he has come about the vacancy and are all keen to interview him. But the chameleons dismiss him as too bland, the flamingos protest that he’s not graceful enough and, despite his best efforts, poor Playtpus will never impress the monkeys. No one wants him and so Platypus turns and leaves. The animals swiftly regret being so unkind, but . . . what’s this? The platypus has left an invitation! He had actually come to the zoo to invite them all to his party! But the platypus has a big heart and, with all forgiven and forgotten, he quickly welcomes his new zoo friends to a fantastic party on his PlatyBus!
A perfect bedtime story that combines comic misunderstandings with a touching message about acceptance and belonging.
