Wonderful Australian book, slightly confusing product description
on 3 September 2011
Product Description: (Perhaps just for Australian buyers!) I bought this book assuming it was a hardcover with dust jacket, however the hardcover description here actually refers to a board book. I should definitely have checked the size, but unfortunately when you search by title the first 4 options include a board book, so I didn't check any further. Just a note really for anyone else in a hurry!
The book itself is wonderful, one of my favourite but perhaps lesser known Australian authors. The pictures are gorgeous, Wombat has such fabulous expressions. (I used to work in a book shop and just about forced this into everyone's hands!)I bought it recently for a 2 year old English, male cousin and introduced him to the Australian animals. Also good for any kiddies a little afraid of the water, as Wombat's friend Platypus teaches him to swim. A lovely Australian gift for international relatives and friends.
