Clifford's Quackles


Aubrey is sitting in his armchair, with a funny look on his face. That usually means he wants Walli and I to do lots of hard work for him. I'm going to play soccer in the garden and will pretend I can't hear him, if he calls.


Walli and I just had a great game of football in the garden. Aubs has skulking in the house all morning and now I guess he's in his bedroom. We bought loads of lovely food from Maureen's earlier and now we're going to fix a great lunch. I'm starving.

Aubs has just come back from Maureen Moose's with bags full of food. He quickly tapped something on his computer and is now in the kitchen, I suppose making his lunch. Aubs didn't offer to prepare anything for Walli or me. He said he's got something to tell us but that it can wait until later. I wonder what it is? 

Aubs has been muttering something about a book he's in. I reckon he's been dreaming. If anyone should be in a book it's Walli and me. We're off to the Leatherapple Orchard, to get away from his bragging.

It's a lovely day on Animaux - lots of sun and Walli and I had a great game of football. Aubs has been in the toilet all morning. I hope he doesn't use all the loo roll!

Aubs doesn't realise that I know how to use his computer. But of course I do, being a very clever platypus. I see he keeps a diary and writes about all sorts of strange things, including about Walli and me! This is my chance to write about him and also about the Island of Animaux.

G'day again. Welcome from Animaux and from Aubs's front room. He's asleep in the armchair and he left his computer turned on. So I decided to use it. Walli is with me and she says 'howzit' to everyone. Later we're going to play football in the garden. Aubs probably won't join us as he says his foot hurts. And I know why. Because he never cuts his toe nails and they're digging into him! In fact he asked Walli to cut them earlier. What a cheek and she told him he was very rude. Quite right! That's enough for now. I wonder what grub is in the kitchen......
