As long as you have good friends,
you'll never really be lost.
Wombat is back in a followup to the bestselling Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball. The critically acclaimed artist Charles Fuge joins writer Angela McAllister to create a charmingly illustrated, deeply reassuring tale about getting lost and found again.
An endearing little wombat and his friends love playing hide-and-seek--even though Wombat doesn't quite understand all the rules of the game. When it's his turn to seek, he hides once more, then calls out "Two, TEN" and opens his eyes. So Rabbit and Koala suggest he count 10 flowers and then search for them. But Wombat doesn't count the pink blossoms nearby; he wanders far away, over the hill, looking for yellow ones. Suddenly, the little animal realizes he's very, very alone...
But you can always depend on friends-and mom--coming to the rescue.
Cuddly, sweet-faced, and personality-filled animals in Fuge's inimitable style, plus a comforting story that kids will really empathize with, add up to a winning combination.
