Edgar the platypus crawled out of his burrow to meet his friend Matilda. She is a wombat. Together they enjoy eating fish sandwiches and weaving household furniture at the bottom of Lake Keenakawonk.
Last Tuesday as they were tidying up Matilda noticed a baby snail on the kitchen counter. It was crying deep, mournful sobs.
“What is wrong little one?” asked Matilda.
“Monsieur Chapeau has captured my parents and plans to eat them.”
What happens next?
