Christmas from a wombat’s point of view, including competition for the carrots children have left out for Santa’s reindeer, and guess who gets stuck in the chimney?
This story presents, in text and photographs, the habits, life cycle, and natural environment of the Australian wombat, one of the world’s largest burrowing animals.
The inimitable wombat who shared her adventures (eating, scratching, digging, sleeping) in the wildly successfulDiary of a Wombatis backwith a baby! This time, it’s the baby who tells the story. And a perfect wombat story it is, featuring eating, scratching, digging, sleeping, and playing, as well as the important task of finding a new underground home big enough for baby and Mum. Wry, understated humor and gorgeous, funny illustrations make this new picture book a brilliant next chapter in the wombat saga.
For more than thirty years, author Jackie French has lived in the Australian bush, coexisting with wild wombats. In this cross between memoir and natural history, Jackie shares her often hilarious adventures with her wombats neighbors and describes their physiology, history, and habits. Bruce Whatley adds pencil drawings in both comic and realistic styles.
