Little Wombat is back!

In 2001, award-winning author and illustrator Charles Fuge (with writer Vicki Churchill) introduced Little Wombat to the world: the wildly popular Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball sold more than 140,000 copies. Since then, the adorable and very childlike animal has starred in another two books and continued to charm both critics and youngsters. Now Wombat’s back in a new adventure that’s sure to be another success.

The grass is always greener on the other side: maybe that’s why Little Wombat thinks his burrow’s boring, while everyone else gets to live someplace exciting. So when Mama suggests he search for a better house, that’s just what Wombat does.

It’s not long before he learns: there really is no place like home.

A fun-filled tale about being happy with the things you have, as well as an entertaining introduction to animal dwellings.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Sometimes I Like to Curl Up In a Ball!:
“With a repertoire of comic expressions worthy of Nathan Lane...[this book] is silly to the core, but it is also a pointed paean to the power of unscheduled play.” —Publishers Weekly
“Wombat is buoyant and darling, charming and fun. This book celebrates the world of a preschooler with verve and excitement.” —School Library

School Library Journal

PreS-K
Wombat is bored with living in his burrow so while his mom is busy spring-cleaning, he follows her suggestion to find somewhere better. Koala, Frog, and Mole invite him to live with them, but wombats can't climb trees or walk on lily pads or live under rocks with the ants. So the ants lead him parade-style to a "great big nest nearby," which is filled with eggs. Mrs. Emu is not pleased. Feeling dejected, he returns to his now-tidy home where there's plenty of room—even enough to have a sleepover with all of his friends. The exuberant illustrations infuse the book's many expressive characters with vim and verve, bringing to life even the lowly worm. The visual closeness of Wombat and his happy support group makes each page feel big, bright, and alive. Wombat's naïveté, optimism, and persistence are a winning combination. His search and final discovery that his own home is ideal will resonate with readers. This book will be a big hit with the storyhour crowd.
