Wombat and Fox: Thrillseekers

Terry Denton
NZD $17.99

Best friends Wombat + Fox are back in a third book, and this time they have a list of WILD and DANGEROUS deeds. What can possibly go wrong? Jam-packed with action, adventure, illustrations and humour, these stories from master of comedy Terry Denton are great for beginner readers.

For Wombat's birthday, Fox gives him the perfect present: a notebook in which to write lists. And the first list Wombat makes is a list of WILD + DANGEROUS DEEDS. What follows is a chaotic, madcap set of misadventures involving a scooter ride down Bandicoot's big hill, a frozen Fox on top of the high-dive tower at the swimming pool and a night spent stuck on the highest point of the roller coaster at Thrillseekers Park. With pesky guest appearances from the mischievous Five Monkeys, warm old favourites Croc and the Hippo Sisters and a brand new friend for Fox - the enigmatic Tasmanian Devil.
