Wombat longs to be part of the nativity play. But as he tries out for each part, he fails miserably and the part goes to some other creature. When there are no parts remaining, Wombat hangs his head in despair. Then Bilby comes to his rescue with an ingenious idea!
All the animals hail from Australia (which is where Mem Fox resides).
My first grader and I giggled at some parts in this cute book.
