Overview

2012 WINNER WHITLEY AWARD FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS

National Library Publishing presents a stylish, highly illustrated re-publication of Leslie Rees’ classic tale, Shy the Platypus. This exciting story of the life of a young platypus describes her growing up and experiencing encounters with humans, other platypuses and different animals.

Leslie Rees published over 40 children’s books and won major awards (Order of Australia & NSW Premier’s Award) for his ‘contribution to Australian literature’. Leslie Rees’s animal stories were an important part of the Australian children’s books from the 1940s onwards. The Rees animal books (original editions in 1940s-50s) were republished in a number of editions by different publishers over the next 50 years. They were widely distributed in English-speaking countries and some were also translated into other languages.

Like the classics such as Seven Little Australians, Blinky Bill, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, or some of Pixie O’Harris’s fairy stories, today’s grandparents remember Shy from their childhoods and will want to share the story.
