Mothball, the loveable, destructive wombat from “Diary of a Wombat” is back for another week.
She has a baby. This time, the diary is from Baby’s point of view. I am wild about the pictures of Mothball and her Baby asleep and playing together. Cuteness doubled!
Baby discovers a toddler nearby, and he is the perfect boredom-buster. He’s also helpful in the search for a new hole-home for the wombats. Home-hunting is so much fun for Baby.
What a delightful, funny and charming diary. Once again Bruce Whatley, the illustrator, lovingly portrays this wild, nocturnal bundle X 2 with super cuteness-factor-plus. The human is pretty cute too, goes without saying… I especially love the nappies and spotty socks.
This is a great book for new readers as the text is simple, and repetitive in parts. Good for learning/anticipating the days of the week. For us older readers, it’s a great opportunity to ham-up the voice drama as you read to littlies. I love books where I can go silly with my voice and expressions. So much fun. Three and 4 year olds are particularly happy to have me read this wombat story (and the prequel) to them.
“Diary of a Wombat” and “Baby Wombat's Week” together, are 5 star. Baby Wombat's Week is 4.5 star on its own, because the novelty of the first book’s diary format, is lost a little on me here.
