Wombat Divine
By Mem Fox
Illustrated by Kerry Argent

Review by: Lori Plach

     Wombat loves every aspect of Christmas celebrations including carol singing, presents, food and candles. But the one thing that he enjoys the most is the annual Nativity Play put on in Wombat's community. As in every year, he wants to play an important part in the production. He's always been too young to audition until this year. He dreams of having a very prestigious part. First of all, he thinks he should be the angel Gabriel, but soon realizes that he's much too heavy to be suspended in air. Maybe Mary is the part for him, but he's much too big to ride on the back of an animal -- played by two other members of the cast. Poor Wombat is too short to wear one of the long robes of a king. Wombat is either too sleepy, clumsy or short sighted for any of the parts that he thinks are the most important. After every failed audition, he is encouraged by Emu who says "Don't lose heart, why not try for another part."
     Wombat is devastated until Bilby comes up with the perfect part for him. A nativity without Baby Jesus is no nativity at all. The part suits
Wombat to a tee. He gets to lay quiet and still and even takes a nap just
as a real baby would. The Nativity Play is a huge success! From the
moment  Wombat is first introduced, he will win your heart and you will
find yourself rooting for him. Wombat shows grit and determination is a
key to success.
      Wombat Divine is a sure fire hit and would make an exceptional addition to all the other Christmas classics!
