Picture Book Review: The Christmas Wombat
The Christmas Wombat
Written by: Jackie French
Illustrated by: Bruce Whatley
Published by: Clarion Books, 2011
* Jackie French has also written Diary of a Wombat and Diary of a BABY Wombat, but this was our first intro to Wombat. In case you didn't know, wombats are Australian animals that look like smaller versions of bears.They enjoy digging, sleeping, and eating.....especially eating carrots! This book is told through a wombat's point of view and details his journey of eating carrots, sleeping, and.....eating carrots. But he runs into some trouble while looking for and keeping his carrots. This book is very loosely Christmas themed, with the Christmas aspects being more pertinent in the illustrations versus the story. This was just an okay, holiday read for us.
This book was borrowed from the library.
