Review quote

`French and Whatley have conjured an affectionate, believable wombat self-portrait.' New York Times Book Review


`Bruce Whatley's illustrations bring the story to life in a way that is both endearing and amusing. It's easy to see why this book has won several awards in Jackie French's native Australia. It deserves to be a huge hit here too, as it feels really fresh and original.' Publishing News
