The Hairy-Nosed Wombats Find a New Home, is a charmingly humorous picture book for young children about the endangered hairy nosed wombat and the search for a new home for them. Ages: 4-8
Once upon a time, deep underground, there was a colony of wonderfully whiskery wombats who all had hairy noses. They lived in the only home for Hairy-nosed Wombats in the world. Could there ever be another home for Hairy-noses?
Created by wombat-loving and award-winning duo, author and Australian Children’s Laureate Jackie French and illustrator Sue deGennaro, this is the (almost) true story of how finding a happy new home for Hairy-nosed Wombats helped one of the world’s most endangered species to breed and thrive again.
