RRP  $22.99 $21.50

Who knew getting a job at the zoo would cause such a hullabaloo? The heartwarming new story from the author/illustrator of There's a Bear on the Chair.

When a small platypus applies for a vacancy at the zoo, he is taken on a rigorous interview process. But he’s far too bland for the chameleons, not nearly graceful enough for the flamingos, and his tricks, quite frankly, will never impress the monkeys. So, disappointed, he leaves.

But soon the animals regret being so unkind and join together to welcome him to the zoo… Leading to a very fun party on his Platybus!

Ross Collins

Ross' primary 1 teacher told his parents that he should go to art school. 13 years went by until he was finally 'old enough' to get into the Glasgow School of Art.

On graduating he won the MacMillan Prize for his first picture book. Since then he's illustrated over 100 books for children and written a few of them too.

Several of them have won enormous glittering awards which he keeps in a box in Latvia. Ross' book The Elephantom was recently adapted into a critically acclaimed play by those clever people at the National Theatre who made that 'War Horse' thing.

When he's not creating children's books he enjoys working on character development for animation studios like Laika and Disney. He also likes walking in the Scottish glens with his dog Hugo, who is an idiot and his partner Jacqui, who is not.
