Oh my gosh, that was so sweet! A clever little story about a misplaced platypus and the journey to find out who or what the really are. The kind of book I could read multiple times.

This sweetly-illustrated tale of a platypus who thinks he's an emu is too cute. Although, in a world populated entirely by animals, I'm not sure why some animals would keep other animals in zoos? That aspect was strange. ...more

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 hi ...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 Australi

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.

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 fil ...more

Here's a platypus who thinks he's an emu far from home. He takes a convoluted journey back to the emus in Australia only to discover he's not an emu after all. Koala recognizes him for what he is and returns him to his platypus parents.

The story is cute but not exceptional. Also, I'm not sure little children will get the eee-moo/ emu play on words. However, the artwork is wonderful!
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!

Very cute and fun illustrations, and a positive and encouraging story to keep looking even if it is difficult to find things.

All kids books are cute right?

This was adorable! Who doesn't love a platypus in a hat, am I right? The drawing style reminded me a bit of the original Winnie the Pooh!

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.
