Wombat is big and puggle, the baby echidna is small. But that doesn’t stop them having a lot of fun is this delightful new book by Renee Treml who brings Australian wildlife to life with her stunning illustrations.
Having already delighted our youngest readers with Ten Little Owls, Once I Heard a Little Wombat, One Very Tired Wombat and Colour for Curlews, she again brings charm and humour to a simple story of two friends playing and discovering the world together. Even with its minimal text, there is a story to be told that parent and child can tease out together and talk about.
In hardback, and soon in board format so it is perfect for new readers to share with themselves over and over, this is perfect for helping them the discover the joy of story and setting them on their lifelong reading journey.
