Book Review: Croc and the Platypus by Jackie Hosking - Reviewed by StephMWard (21 May 2016)
This delightful, rhyming picture book follows two unlikely Aussie friends on an impromptu journey to the red center. Along the way, they play an indigenous instrument, eat local sweets and meet a new mate among the sheep shearers. Finally, the duo set up camp under the famed Southern Cross enjoying the night alongside a wonderous red rock.
A joyous tale in perfect rhyme, The Croc and the Platypus is a fun read-aloud story that includes an incredible number of Australian icons. The stunning artwork beautifully compliments the simple text as it introduces young readers to the wonders of the Australian outback.
