Dear Carol Shields and Sophie Blackall,

Wombat WalkaboutWombat Walkabout had me hooked from the minute I looked at the cover–who knew wombats could be so adorable!  The story felt Aesop-esque to me, slightly frightening when you don’t know exactly what’s happening to the wombats as they get left behind one by one, but the happy ending makes up for any worry.  This is a well-paced, simple, charming picturebook with a great foreign flavor for American readers.   Four stars!

Love,

apple
