Albert is a duck-billed platypus, who has escaped from a zoo in Adelaide to look for somewhere that may, or may not, exist: Old Australia, a place where humans never venture, and animals still rule. Albert knows it's somewhere in the middle of the Outback - not the ideal habitat for a water-loving animal - but now he's lost and close to death. He's saved, though, by Jack, a pyromaniac, sardine-loving wombat, who promptly gets him into even worse trouble by taking him to a marsupial-only bar run by a kangaroo called O'Hanlin, getting him drunk, and then burning the bar down. And this is just the beginning of Albert's adventure....
A glorious romp of a novel, Albert of Adelaide is a story of friendship, loyalty, and heroism. And marsupials. Pacy and poignant, it's completely original - a book for people (and animals) of all ages
