So I loved this book when I was a kid. I mean really loved this book. The problem was that it wasn't mine. It belong to a school library in Stockholm where my family was staying for a time.

I finally (so many years later) got my own copy. And you know, it is as good as I remember it. A wonderful story about a Platypus. Cute but not overly so. Wonderful.
