Overview

Cuddly, sweet-faced, and personality-filled animals in Fuge’s inimitable style, plus a comforting story, add up to a winning combination.

As long as you have good friends, you’ll never really be lost.

The popular follow-up to the bestselling Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball is now available as a board book—sturdy enough for little hands opening it again and again. Critically acclaimed artist Charles Fuge joins with writer Angela McAllister to create a charmingly illustrated, deeply reassuring tale about getting lost and found again. When an endearing wombat and his friends play hide-and-seek, the little animal gets so involved in the game that he wanders over the hill and far away. Suddenly, Wombat realizes he’s very, very alone.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The star of Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball returns for a game of Hide and Seek in Found You, Little Wombat! by Angela McAllister, illus. by Charles Fuge. Little Wombat is "It," but grows distracted by his surroundings, wanders off and becomes lost and frightened in a rainstorm. Luckily, Mom comes to the rescue ("What a clever umbrella!" she says reassuringly, when she finds her son crying and shivering under a toadstool). Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Little Wombat loves playing hide-and-seek with Koala and Rabbit. He is good at hiding, but does not understand the seeking bit. At first, all three animals hide. Then Wombat tries counting, "Two, TEN!" Finally, he starts to find and count ten flowers, but becomes distracted and wanders away. A storm arrives and Little Wombat is shaken and tearful. Hiding under a toadstool, he hears the familiar voice of his mom. The heartwarming story teaches a lesson about becoming lost and the reassurance that mom is always looking for her little one. Bright, bold illustrations capture the actions and expressions of the little playmates. Young readers should also enjoy finding the insects and flowers that distracted Little Wombat. 2003, Sterling Publishing Co, Ages 3 to 6.
