The Wombat Who Talked to the Stars

by Jill Morris

illustrated by Sharon Dye


line

A very special book about a rare and endangered species found in one small area in Australia. Wombats are the most appealing furry mammals. The species called the Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat is teetering on the brink of extinction, having decreased to about 60 individuals living in burrows in the hot, dry north-west of Queensland.

Jill Morris’ imaginative text and Sharon Dye’s watercolour illustrations range from (true) narrative stories to poems and scientific reports. The layout is reminiscent of an ancient document, designed and written by one of the wombats, who has walked into the study traps 58 times! This satisfying book with the texture of an archival treasure records the special moment when a young male ‘flew’ away to start a captive breeding program.

Useful as a model for any study of environment or wildlife, this book is of interest to all ages. The first publication about this wombat species, this book is itself a rare experience.
