French has found a way to take a very simple concept and make it very funny. All of her wombat stories are best for audiences of at least preschool age. Toddlers might not get it if there are no wombats in the neighborhood.
This time, little wombat is ready to do battle for carrots. The strange creatures who also want them turn up repeatedly on his voyage to find even more tasty nibbles around the world. Eventually, wombat discovers that reindeer are rather helpful.
