The Christmas Wombat
THE CHRISTMAS WOMBAT by Jackie French with illustrations by Bruce Whatley. Clarion Books, 2012.
Wombat loves carrots. One winter, his sensitive nose (and powerful hunger) leads him in search of carrots only to discover some other strange animal (reindeer, in this case) eating them. Wombat manages to get his fill of carrots and then curls up in the rungs of Santa's sleigh. He is delighted to discover that there are plenty of carrots to be had when he teams up with Santa and the reindeer. <412>
