Product Details


“Welcome is at the heart of Carmen Agra Deedy’s story. . . . rendered in charming detail by Brian Lies..”—The New York Times

★ “The dry wit of the text is matched by art that is both detailed in illustrating each animal and hilarious in showing poor Wombat’s trials. . . . A superb read-aloud balancing messages about the environment and generosity with humor and heart.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Welcoming those in distress, be they friends or strangers, is a message that benefits all students. This title does just that with charming and humorous ­detail in both words and pictures.”—School Library Journal

“Educators will find multiple curricular connections for this tale of hospitality, climate, and displacement, but young readers will likely be most attracted to the humor in text and art and the personalities of the animal neighbors.”—The Horn Book

“Entertaining and richly colored acrylics and colored-pencil illustrations—including a bonus cutaway displaying Wombat’s snug three-level underground abode. . . .”—Booklist

“Acrylic and colored pencil renderings by Lies (the Little Bat series) of Wombat’s multilevel burrow, which include an elaborate cutaway, instantly establish it a place of safety and comfort. . . .  With unspoken but unmistakable reference to the ravages of climate change, the creators underscore the idea that hospitality is not always about politesse—it can be a matter of life and death..”—Publishers Weekly
