Deep in the Australian bush, Wombat and the other animals prepare to celebrate Christmas.
Wombat has been very busy. He's made the Christmas pud (from Nanna Wombat's beaut recipe), decorated a tall ghost gum, sparkly as can be, and while the other animals sleep, their stockings all hung by the campfire, Wombat begins to wrap the presents and check them off his list.
OH NO! He's missed one! It's too late to shop. Wombat desperately tries to make something nice for Emu, to show how much he cares, but nothing works out the way he'd like.
Then Wombat has a brilliant idea. This special Christmas present should make Emu smile, all year.
With lots of colour and simple, rhyming lines, this delightful little book will make every young reader, eagerly anticipating Christmas, feel VERY warm and fuzzy.
