A Christmas Wombat story

We have all loved the wombat stories from Jackie French and illustrated by Bruce Whatley over the years.  They are funny, warm and a favourite with children and adults.  This year we have Christmas Wombat, where we follow the families  adventures during the Christmas festivities. Another winner.  While stocks last we have a small plush wombat to go with the book.  Limited stock so don’t leave it too late as we can’t get any more of the toys. The book is a hardback and costs $25


Flood by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley

Flood, by award-winning author Jackie French, is a picture book for children which tells the story of the dreadful floods that wreaked such havoc on Queensland at the beginning of this year. It describes the devastation caused by the quickly rising water, as well as the many acts of bravery, including the well-known story of the little tugboat that pulled away the broken boardwalk in Brisbane. The book also celebrates the generosity of the many volunteers who helped with the clean-up. Evocatively illustrated by Bruce Whatley’s beautiful watercolours, all profits from the sale of the book will be donated to the Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. Paperback, $17
