Synopsis

Platypus is certain today will be special. Then . . . his kite gets caught in a tree, the wind ruins his beautiful new painting, and it starts to rain--very hard. Everything is going wrong. But even though this not-so-perfect day hasn't turned out quite like he'd hoped, Platypus finds just the right way to make it a truly lucky one.
In his second adventure of this endearing series, the thoughtful, lively, and completely irrepressible Platypus shows once again that he is the ideal companion for every young child.
