We Thought You Were a Platypus

By Nick Aster, Illustrated by Clarie Petitt

This children's book explores the excitement of waiting for a baby to arrive and the silly mistakes that are sometimes made in enthusiasm. Witty illustrations and humorous dialog will entertain children as well as adults. It also featured platypuses, and who doesn't love that?
