Ma che cos'è un vombato??? Risponde a questa strana domanda Jackie French, autrice di almeno centosei libri, dai volumi di giardinaggio ai libri per bambini, australiana, con un marito tollerante che accetta vombati sul sofà di casa ma non animali domestici perché, dice, siamo noi gli animali domestici della fauna locale. Insieme a lei è chiamato a svelare cos'è un vombato Bruce Whatley, anch'egli australiano, illustratore.

Wombats are cute. As long as they are happening to someone else.
I love that this story is told in the diary format. The wombat, which I don’t know this creature very well, is giving his story. He is cute and cuddly and just a little oblivious to the fact that he is very very destructive to things around him. He might be cute, but I sure wouldn’t want to be his n Leggi tutto
This is the week long diary of a wombat (an Australian animal that likes to dig holes, eat, and sleep.) As the week progresses and it attains its desires, the story just gets funnier and funnier; it really had me chortling. The pictures are hilarious as the wombat keeps her sleepy expression through Leggi tutto
This is a delightful little story, amusing, with CUTE-as-can-be illustrations. Growing up on five acres in the country, I was used to deer coming by and asserting their rightful territory by eating our flowers, drinking our water, etc. Now, I want to spend some time at an Australian country house so Leggi tutto
It's a difficult job getting humans trained properly, but our wombat heroine is equal to the challenge in this hilarious picture book. With its highly felicitous meeting of text and image, Diary of a Wombat gives the reader a wombat's view of her new neighbors, who provide her with the ideal dust-ba Leggi tutto
This is one of my favourite picture books, ever since it first came out, and it's taken me seven years to finally get a copy - but the wait is worth it. Wombats are lazy animals - cousin to the koala, which is only awake for about 45 mins a day - and oh so adorable. When I was in Grade 6 I did an as Leggi tutto
A charming and very single-minded wombat finds a lovely home with some new neighbors, and teaches them to give him carrots. I think my cats may have read this book. Although they prefer kitty treats to carrots, of course.
Another classic I read growing up!
I first encountered wombats when I went to the Olympics in Sydney in 2000. Fatso, the Fat-Arsed Wombat was an unofficial games mascot, on Channel 7 TV every evening in the wonderful Roy and HG roundup of the days’ events. We then saw a real one at the Sydney zoo – of course, asleep and unmoving. Now Leggi tutto
I guess wombats are as pesky to Australians as deer can be to Americans. It's a fun story! Ages: 3 - 6 Cleanliness: "for pete's sake" is exclaimed. #geography #australia **Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything i Leggi tutto
