“A hilarious view of Christmas as seen through the eyes of Mothball the wombat.
Christmas comes but once a year and it’s just as well for Santa’s reindeer who have to fight with Mothball for the carrots left out for them by the local children. And when Mothball takes an unexpected sleigh ride, it’s not just Santa who faces the prospect of getting stuck in the chimney.
Christmas from a wombat’s eye view is always going to be interesting – especially when that wombat is Mothball!”
We were new to the Diary of a Wombat books and this Christmas version was certainly a good introduction to them. Mothball tells the story in diary form and although more suitable to young children the to the point desciption of Christmas Eve from Mothball’s point of view had my 10 year old daughter in stiches as she read it to her young cousins.
The illustrations are lovely and full of detail and the writing easy to understand for younger children but funny enough to appeal to older children too. It’s definitely one that will be read again and again each year at Christmas!
Please note we were sent a copy of the above mentioned book for review
