Our review…

If you enjoyed Tippy and Jellybean, this is another great text about animal bravery during the 2020 Australian bushfires. A wombat leads a group of animals into its cold, safe burrow to wait out the bushfire.

A gorgeous story about animal and human connection in challenging times. A portion of the sales from this book also goes to support The Wombat Protection Society.
