What does it take to become a hero? Albert has escaped from the Adelaide Zoo to go in search of the 'old Australia', somewhere in the desert, north of Adelaide, a 'Promised Land' that he's heard so much about from other animals. Unusually, Albert is a duck-billed platypus. Four days north of Alice Springs and carrying nothing other than an old, almost empty soft-drink bottle, Albert has no idea where he's going. One thing he does know, though; if he doesn't find water fast, he's going to be in all sorts of trouble. But when all seems lost, he comes across a wombat by a campfire who offers him a cup of tea. And so begin Albert's adventures, during which he meets two drunk, wise-cracking bandicoots (Roger and Alvin), a wrestling Tasmanian Devil (called Muldoon), escapes from a burning hotel (set alight by his good friend the pyromaniac wombat Jack) after a very lucky streak at two-up, and runs for his life from the dingoes. Charming, funny and entrancing, Albert of Adelaide is a novel of mateship, adventure and honour.
