Baby Wombat narrates its daily life much as its mama did in the previous book - though the mama is now tired, crowded, and pounced-upon. The baby wombat finds a playmate in the child of the family the wombats live near. ( )

Should be called Diary of a Baby and a Baby Wombat. The interaction with the human baby was key. But I think it was awkward - after all, wombats are wild animals, not quite like tame doggies. I mean, French knows better than I do, but seriously? ( )

39 months - cute, not too wordy and would be good for little guys. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0547430051, Hardcover)

The inimitable wombat who shared her adventures (eating, scratching, digging, sleeping) in the wildly successful Diary of a Wombat is back–with a baby! This time, it's the baby who tells the story. And a perfect wombat story it is, featuring eating, scratching, digging, sleeping, and playing, as well as the important task of finding a new underground home big enough for baby and Mum. Wry, understated humor and gorgeous, funny illustrations make this new picture book a brilliant next chapter in the wombat saga.
