Will there be a part in the Nativity play left for Wombat? "Utterly universal. Readers will empathize with the Wombat's sadness and ultimate joy."--"Family Life." Full color.


The show must go on‘and the annual Nativity play is no exception. Ready to break a leg, Wombat eagerly auditions for every part in the production, only to find that he's not quite suited for any of them. When fussy director Emu brilliantly suggests that Wombat accept the important role of baby Jesus, the play is finally ready for opening night. In her humorous and understated watercolors, Argent's (One Woolly Wombat) beguiling bunch of Australian animals embodies a refreshing all-for-one Christmas spirit. Fox's (Time for Bed) title is one of the few this season to take a playful approach to Christmas and its pleasures are infectious. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)

Denise Ross on
Another winner from Mem Fox. Not a new title but still a good one.

A delightful take on the Christmas story, with Australian native animals as the characters in the Nativity play.

Wombat isn't quite right for most of the parts in the play but is supported by the other animals to "Try for a different part" until he finds one for which he is perfect.

There is something to be gained from this book for a range of ages, I would suggest. I have used it with children from 3 to 8 and now give it as gifts to new members of the family.
This is one of my favourite children's books. There is a great message behind this story and I think it really encourages kids to be accepting of others, despite our differences.

Mem Fox's books are a must read for children. If ever there was an author to inspire kids to love books she is it.

This book makes a great Christmas gift, it combines the meaning of Christmas with an Australian animal theme.

One of our many Mem Fox favourites. A great read.

Wombat Divine wants to be in the Nativity play. Feel Wombat's disappointment as he fails to get each part. A great Christmas book (that's not too Christmassy) it is also a great year-round read. Fabulous for little kids who have been disappointed, particularly missing out on some sort of try-outs. For kids two to ten.
