About: It’s a lucky author who manages to snaffle Charles Fuge to illustrate their work.

Churchill’s absolutely charming rhyming picture book comes to life with these stunning, evocative illustrations, of a little wombat who loves to gad about with his adorable friends, before retiring to his most favourite place of all.

The rhyme and tone of this book is beautifully done – kids will be entranced by both the rhythm and the lovable characters, injected with much humour and movement.

This is one of my kids’ favourite picture books and they are still reading it, at ages 6 and 9.
