A delightful counting book featuring some very cheeky Australian animals and lots of humour.
How hard can it be to find a bit of peace and quiet?
Wombat is tired and just wants to rest. But it's hard to sleep during the day when a bunch of noisy birds want to sing and play. The magpies keep whistling, the fairy wrens are flitting about and don't even talk about the kookaburras.
Poor tired wombat. Will he ever get to sleep?
One Very Tired Wombat is a charming counting book featuring some very cheeky Australian animals.
“This delightful counting picture book is cleverly written and designed . . . The alliterative and well-worked language works well being read aloud while many will delight in the beautiful illustrations.”
Liz Derouet, Magpies
“Counting books are a dime a dozen, but Renee Treml's imaginative language makes One Very Tired Wombat unique! … Full of alliteration and humour, this hardcover gem doubles as a learning tool for young ones practising counting.”
