SLEEP TIGHT, PLATYPUP

Poor little Platypup is frightened of the dark. What is that shadow? Who made that noise? But there's nothing to fear. With his mother by his side, the little platypus ventures out of his burrow to explore. The moonlight dances on the water. Leaves whisper and gumnuts knock in the wind. Platypup discovers that his home by the river is just as lovely in the dark of night as it is during the day! And that's not scary at all. Come along and meet Renee Treml, author and illustrator of this gorgeous new picture book. For families with preschool aged children.
