Wombat loves everything about Christmas--especially the Nativity play. He's wanted to be in it for as long as he can remember. At last he's old enough to try out. But at the auditions, the first part goes to someone else. So does the next. And the next . . . Will there be a part left for Wombat?

My family has been great fans of Mem Fox for many years. My daughter had a baby in September and I am reconstructing the home library she had. This was a favorite holiday book for her and for her classmates. It is sweet and meaningful on many levels.

It was a cute story. Definitely not worth a 5 star but it was cute and I would read it once a year around Christmas to my kids but not interesting enough to want to read it over and over again, but it was cute and sweet.

I first fell in love with this delightful book on a recent visit to Australia. So much so, that I brought back seven copies as gifts! Author, Mem Fox, has written a classic tale of wanting to be accepted and contribute/belong to the group. A national department store in Australia featured Wombat Devine in their 2006 Holdiay window displays with animated characters who told the story....reminiscent of Macy's Holiday window displays. Combines familiar story with animals from Australia to play the story's characters...kangaroos, koalas and others.

Wombat devine is an allegorical story of a simple child who cannot quite do what is required . But in the end takes the central role in a Christmas play and shows that no matter who or what we are we are important and loved.
