Don't pat the wombat! by Elizabeth Honey - reviewed by Noah

I've met the author and the book is signed. It’s about a dude who has a really crap teacher and really annoying class mates and they go on camp and he brings lollies when he was not meant to. Camp is like a cowboy training type of camp in the hills of Victoria. It’s a nature place where they look after injured animals. There’s a wombat who thinks it’s a dog. It’s mum was run over by a car. There is another wombat who is much older called ‘Bulldozer’ and he is why they say ‘don’t pat the wombat’ because he is still a wild animal and he is about to be put back into nature.

Rated:  5 reallys
