The Wombats go on camp

Roland Harvey
Allen & Unwin
ISBN: 9781743315040           RRP: $24.99

Readers are introduced to the members of a school group – students and teachers - named the Wombats. They’re going on a school camp, but not just yet. We get to meet them first, each with their quirky fantasies, foibles and phobias. The details in the zany illustrations must be read carefully along with the offbeat text, if readers are to get to know these Wombats before they are let loose on their adventures to come (we’re told this is the first in a new series). Can’t wait for more!
