What's Wombat Divine About

Publisher Summary

Wombat loves everything about Christmas–especially the Nativity play. He’s wanted to be in it for as long as he can remember. At last he’s old enough to try out. But at the auditions, the first part goes to someone else. So does the next. And the next . . . Will there be a part left for Wombat?

What Kind of Book is Wombat Divine

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
6.0 / 7.0

This is a childhood favorite of mine and hasn’t lost any of its charm through years of re-reading. The story of Wombat who wants despearately to be part of the nativity play is simple, yet delightful, and the repetition pulls the story together rather than making it feel worn out. Wombat is a uniquely lovable character.

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
4.75 / 7.0

Wombat takes you through all of the Nativity parts till he find the perfect one for him. This sweet and simple story is fun and emphasizes the most important part of the nativity!
