Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A loving celebration of sleeptime through story, pictures, and music."  —Margaret Wild, author, Kiss Kiss!

"One of Australia’s best exports."  —Vancouver Sun on Coco's Lunch

"The humorous short chapters, informal tone, and camaraderie among the boys are sure to make Wombat! a hit, even with reluctant readers."  —School Library Journal on Don't Pat the Wombat!

Kirkus Reviews
A little boy can't get to sleep! Even after a bath, a new pair of soft pajamas and a bedtime story, red-headed Italian-Australian Fiddy (who looks to be about four) is still wide awake. His father suggests dreaming up something and singing a song about it. And so Fiddy does: All the articles around his bed dance merrily, his stuffed monkey takes him on a jungle adventure and a huge red bear shows him how to hibernate. Fiddy tries this, to no avail. Finally, his grandfather's outer-space fantasy does the trick; the planets swirl around him, and he drifts off to dreamland. Bright gouache illustrations have fuzzy edges that enhance the dreamlike quality of Fiddy's nighttime adventures. Honey and Johnson's delicious bonus to the story is a CD of nine songs to accompany the narrative. (The CD also has the story read by Honey.) Lyrics are printed on the inside cover and first page, but might have been better embedded in the story. Still, a cozy two-for-one bedtime romp. (Picture book. 3-6)
