Delightfully comical, providing a satisfying story that will
appeal to the whole family, from toddlers through adults.
--Kirkus, starred review French provides Whatley with bare-bones scaffolding on which to build comic moments of Wombat munching, napping, and tussling with reindeer.
--Publishers Weekly Charming and slight, the humor shines through the spare text and Whatley's expressive paintings of the lazy wombat.
--School Library Journal Succinct sentences and episodic pacing allow Wombat's adventures to speak for themselves.
--Horn Book Jackie French's succinct narration works charmingly with Bruce Whatley's depictions of the myopic, carrot-loving quadruped that accidentally stows himself on Santa's sled.
