  • Summary:

    Can sudden fame and fortune replace the love and connection we have of our home? What is a platypus and what makes these creatures so unique in the animal kingdom? These questions and more are answered in this heartwarming story about a platypus that discovers that home is truly where the heart is. “The Amazing Adventure of Paddy Platypus” is the story of Paddy, the fastest swimmer on the island of Tasmania. He is so fast that Sir Hugh Tidybrooke, the head of the Department of Waterways, Foreign Affairs and Underground Railways convinces Paddy that he should go with him to the United States and enter the swimming championships in Los Angeles. Paddy wins all the races he enters but is frustrated with the hubbub of activity in the big city. He doesn’t enjoy his sudden fame - reporters harass him, bellboys try to take his traveling kit, and his life is turned upside down. In the final championship ocean race, he surprises everyone when he keeps on going and swims all the way home to Tasmania and peace.
