Once Upon a Wombat Time is the story of how a baby wombat, left orphaned after a car accident, came into the lives of his human rescuers and changed the family forever. By simply experiencing life with the cheeky and enchanting 'Wombie', his human family gained insights into life they'd never forget, and neither will you.Written and beautifully illustrated by a local East Gippsland resident, Christine L. Watts, Once Upon a Wombat Time is dedicated to Volunteer Wildlife Shelter carers throughout Australia.This heartfelt story opens up discussion on issues including caring for each other and Mother Nature, and how we can all help our planet survive. Woven throughout the text and textured illustrations are messages of life, the environment and the heart. Written in prose with delightful dry felted illustrations, Once Upon a Wombat Time is a favorite to be read and enjoyed time and time again by both the young and young at heart!!
