Eee-Moo is a wonderful tale about a platypus who is misplaced. First his egg is dropped on the way to be delivered, then he falls out of a bicycle basket on the way to the zoo, finally he ends up in a barn on a farm far away from his real destination. He’s misidentified as an emu but the animals on the farm help get him headed in the right direction. Off he goes to Australia via all forms of transportation. When he gets there he’s still in the wrong place but with the help of a koala he finds ...more

If you have ever been lost, misunderstood and had important decisions made on your behalf, then you must have been a child (or maybe even an adult). This is exactly what happens to Eee-Moo. After being stranded by the stork, he finds his destiny being decided by a handful of helpful friends he meets on his way Down Under. With the naivety of a newly hatched platypus (because that’s what he is) and a sense of adventure, he sets off, trusting fate to help him find his way back to his fellow ...more

Eee-Moo is a platypus, but thanks to what he heard when he was hatched, the animals around him think he's an emu. They tell him he needs to go to Australia to be with other emus, and thus launches an epic journey to find where he belongs.

A humorous case of mistaken identity that is chock full of all sorts of Australian animals and word play. The illustrations are cute. The book was only moderately interesting to the five year old niece I read it to. I think it would help if she knew her

A strange egg is found and brought to the zoo. When it hatches, the pig and cow keeping watch say "Eee!" and "Moo!"; so the little critter says it back, and they think that's what he is, but he's actually a platypus. Eventually they realize he should go to Australia, because that is where Emu's live, but when he arrives at the Emu's they don't know him! Fortunately, a nearby Koala guess where Eeemoo's family may actually be and they are reunited.

A sneaky transportation story, as Eeemoo uses

Here is a hilarious look at a case of mistaken identity. In this instance it is a little platypus that hatches at a farm and the first creatures and sounds he hears are from a pig, "EEE!" and a cow "Moo!" Fortunately his new friends decide he needs to journey home to find his Emu family. Arriving in Australia turns out to be quite the trip as he travels by bus, train, ferry, moped, rickshaw, and airplane. Once in Australia he gets help from a kangaroo, a kookaburra and a koala. Cute drawings ...more
Baby platypus first words were eee and moo and all the animals get confused and think he belongs with the emus! By various means of transportation they send him back to Australia where he eventually finds his parents! Cute!

The lengths we go sometimes.
It was a cute book. Nothing that really rocked my child's picture book perspective, but better than some of the picture books I have been reading.

Platypi rank quite high on my Favorite Animals list, and honestly... this is just super cute. What else is there to say?

Kind of a standard story about an animal who mistakenly thinks he is a different animal, but ultimately finds where he belongs.

Alright, cute book about a platypus that was born bur the first things he heard were "eee" and "moo" obviously around a pig and a cow. But because these were the first sounds he heard, this is what he thought he was. He's mistaken for an Emu throughout the book but eventually, with the help of his friends, finds his way home.
