Now in board! The ever-popular Wombatâ€™s back in a format thatâ€™s just right for the smallest children. Award-winning author and illustrator Charles FugeÂ—whose Sometimes I Curl Up in a Ball sold 106,000 copiesÂ—has created a fun-filled tale about discovering new friends and appreciating others' differences.
Fans of Charles Fuge's Little Wombat will rejoice at the adorable creature's watery exploits, and at the introduction of an appealing new friend for his hero: a Platypus with a funny, fuzzy face who waddles as he walks and swims like a fish. And to swim is what Little Wombat wants to do most of all. But are wombats meant for the water...or is he better off staying on dry land? Every child who has ever eyed the swimming pool nervously will happily follow Little Wombat's success.
Â“TheÂ…illustrations are warm and reflective, and show the growing connection between the pair. They also depict the humor of the struggle as Wombat learns to swim. This story offers a good lesson about friendship [and] isÂ…reassuring...â€Â—School Library Journal
