Meet Albert – everybody’s favourite monotreme, and the hero of a quirky new novel by Howard L. Anderson.
When Albert the Platypus escapes from Adelaide Zoo in search of a better life, he begins an adventure that will take him beyond his wildest dreams. His search takes him to Old Australia, where he meets a cast of colourful characters, comprising of a slew of native Australian animals.
Along the way, Albert discovers what it means to be a loyal friend, and that being brave sometimes means putting others first, regardless of the personal consequences.
I enjoyed reading this delightfully original novel, and would recommend it to anyone with a love for fresh ideas and quirky characters.
