Once I heard a little wombat

Renee Treml
Random House Australia
ISBN: 9780857987396
RRP: $14.99 [Board book]

If not bilbies then why not wombats; especially if they are as appealing as this little fellow. Just as appealing are his Australian mates that make their way into this nursery chant based on Once I saw a little bird. Toddlers are invited into the book to join in the action and make the sounds. All of this joyful behaviour is recorded in scratch-work style illustration
which gives movement and character to the drawings; in black and white, they contrast strongly against coloured backgrounds.
