The Wombats at the Zoo

Roland Harvey
NZD $28.99

Our favourite group of kids and two teachers are off to the zoo for a memorable day.

The Wombats and their teachers, Ms Annabel and Mrs Nott, are off to the zoo.

Audrey bonds with bilbies, Alecia is on safari, Hughie wants to race a camel.

Freddie explores underwater with his magic eye, Horrie is shocked by snakes, and Ima plays harmonica with a crocodile.

Ava whistles to the wild dogs, Naucia wants to take a meerkat home, Nurse Sardi helps in the animal hospital.

Dante shoots hoops with the seals, Oliver admires the cheetah, and Albert calculates just how much one hippo can eat.

By the end of the day, the Wombats don't want to leave. Can you help Mrs Nott find out where they all went?

Praise for The Wombats Go on Camp: 'The zany and detailed illustrations by Harvey delightfully show the quirky nature of the children known as the Wombats.and the fun and mischief they will, and do, get up to on their first school camp. A funny and recommended book.' Magpies
