Description THE BUNYIP OF BERKELEY'S CREEK narrative followed Jenny Wagner’s storyline closely. The Bunyip appeared from his muddy creek, asking “who am I?” of all the passers-by. Raucously laughing at him, the Kookaburra pointed out that he had feathers; the Platypus identified his fur; the Emu and Kangaroo squabbled over his tail and running ability; and the doctor wouldn’t listen. Fortunately for the increasingly woebegone Bunyip he met another of his kind and a happily-ever-after conclusion ensued.
