Picture Book | Wombat
Wombat | Soft Cover Picture Book | 3y+
Take a rhythmic, read-aloud (and rather silly) burrow into the unseen world of the wombat! Set in a similar style to Mopoke, this is a book created to be read together. The deliberately sparse script and silly illustrations invite the reader to follow the fate of a blossoming marsupial love story.
Wombat was listed as a CBCA Notable Book for 2021, and won the State Library of NSW Russell Prize for Humour Writing for Young People 2021. Wombat was also selected as Australia’s representative for illustration at The International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) 2022.
About the Author
Philip Bunting is an author and illustrator, with a soft spot for creating picture books for sleep-deprived, time-poor, raisin-encrusted parents (and their children).
Philip’s work deliberately encourages playful interaction between the reader and child, allowing his books to create a platform for genuine intergenerational engagement, and fun He believes that the more fun the child has during their early reading experiences, the more likely they will be to return to books, improve their emergent literacy skills, and later find joy in reading and learning.
