Sometimes I like to curl up in a ball
So no one can see me
because I''m so small.

A new format for the hugely praised bestseller.
Little wombat spends a day doing favorite things-what could they be? Are they your favorites, too? Let''s look and see. Soft-toned illustrations portray an endearing little wombat and the warm and friendly world around him. Every page is filled with charming details that stand up to repeated viewings: cute mice, rabbits, and turtles peering from behind tall grass, marching pigeons, and a menagerie of other adorable animals. The images, along with the lyrically rhyming text, combine to make a sweet-spirited bedtime story to ease young ones to sleep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Illustrations! I absolutely loved the illustrations in this book, very detailed and adorable. The story itself was great, but the rhyming was a bit forced. All in all I will buy many more books by Charles Fuge (illustrator).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We 3 love it We took turns reading this book to my belly while pregnant and now that baby's 3 months old we still enjoy it very much. The illustrations are priceless, the rhymes are great & it's nice and little. (All are important if you're going to read to belly! It must be a story you enjoy reading & even look forward to) Now we add actions and make faces while reading it to baby. I'm sure it will be a favourite choice for bedtime story time as she gets older.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down my favourite board book of Nephew Past This was my nephew's favourite board book when he was a kid. The child can act out the antics of the loveable wombat, and the drawings are just so adorably cute that adults can't help but smile. This little guy is worthy of a repeat - and I hope my Niece agrees!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband, my son and I all love this book This is one of all time favourite books, the words rhyme and each page a little lesson about how we are all not perfect, the illustrations are also amazing. Very sweet book that I have been reading since my son was born and now that he's 18 months he picks himself as one of his favoutires.
