Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball

Little wombat spends a day doing his favorite things: walking around and around, and doing a pigeon step till he falls down. Or sticking out his pink tongue—and making funny faces! But when the day ends and the sun starts to fall…he goes back home to mama and curls into a ball. Good night!

“With a repertoire of comic expressions worthy of Nathan Lane...[t]his book is silly to the core, but it is also a pointed paean to the power of unscheduled play.”
Publishers Weekly

“This book celebrates the world of a preschooler with verve and excitement...Wombat is buoyant and darling, charming and fun.” —School Library Journal

Found You, Little Wombat!

When the endearing little wombat gets lost during a game of hide-and-seek, he suddenly realizes he’s very, very alone. But you can always depend on friends—and Mom—coming to the rescue. Cuddly animals and a comforting story add up to a winning combination.

Swim, Little Wombat, Swim!

Little Wombat fans will rejoice at the adorable creature’s watery exploits, and at the introduction of an appealing new friend for his hero: a Platypus with a funny, fuzzy face who waddles as he walks and swims like a fish.

“The…illustrations are warm and reflective…They also depict the humor of the struggle as Wombat learns to swim. This story offers a good lesson about friendship [and] is…reassuring.” —School Library Journal

Where to, Little Wombat?

The grass is always greener on the other side: maybe that’s why Little Wombat thinks his burrow’s boring. So when Mama suggests he search for a better house, that’s just what he does. But it’s not long before Wombat learns that there is no place like home.
“The exuberant illustrations infuse the books’ many expressive characters with vim and verve.”—School Library Journal
