Best book to come along in ages!!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Diary of a Wombat (Ala Notable Children's Books. Younger Readers (Awards)) (Hardcover)This is a glorious children's book that parents will enjoy reading to their children over and over again. The text is hilarious and the illustrations absolutely ravishing. It is a picture book that can be read at a lot of different levels and by a lot of different age groups. Small children will love it for its illustrations and deceptively simple text. Slightly older children will learn a lot from it about the world of cause and effect as seen through the eyes of an enterprising wombat. Children who are slightly older still will learn about drawing inferences about what is really happening when the literal-minded wombat (for example) bangs on the large metal object or finds an amazing source of carrots. I purchased a copy for my fifteen-year-old daughter, and she absolutely loves it because it is adorable and because the wombat bears a striking resemblance to our dog, who goes through similar exercises in regulating those around him. (I bought copies for everyone I know with a small child, too.)
Buy this book for all the children in your life!
