    This adventure starts with the endpapers, when a stork accidentally drops an egg on the way to make a baby delivery. The wayward egg hatches in front of some surprised farm animals, and a case of mistaken identity ensues. The baby's first word is "eee-moo" (imitating the respective reactions of a nearby pig and cow), so all the farm-animal locals assume that the little platypus is actually an emu, and they direct the little guy to Australia to find his parents. After hopping from one form of transportation to another, Eee-Moo finds his flock, but he quickly sees that he doesn't fit in with the emus. Not to worry: a nearby koala facilitates a happy ending by reuniting him with his real platypus parents. Dunklee's story is incredibly sweet and silly, and Won's winning illustrations add a wonderful sense of whimsy to the proceedings. Readers will delight in this world of anthropomorphized animals, coming away with a lesson on the importance of the friends and family who help them find their way. Preschool-Grade 2.
