When I was in the book store very recently, I saw this book on the sale table and nostalgia just brimmed out of me. I showed it to my fiance and surprisingly he had never heard of the book.
It's fantastic!! I NEED to go back and get it! It's just brilliant! The story, moral, catchy rhyme and beautiful illustrations have been pieced together perfectly to create this book!
It could be just rote, but the pages have all left such an impression on me I'm certain the book is forever in my head, word f When I was in the book store very recently, I saw this book on the sale table and nostalgia just brimmed out of me.
It could be just rote, but the pages have all left such an impression on me I'm certain the book is forever in my head, word for word and picture for picture. Guy Montag, I'm ready for when you want to pick me up, I've memorized my book. I recommend it to everyone, from every country. This is just one of those childhood books I think everyone should know.
A beautiful piece of Australian culture that I am definitely proud of, Mate. Rereading this book before I wrap them as Christmas presents for my two adolescent boys brought me back to the time when I was made to read this book almost every night before bed! Gosh, we were never sick of the ridiculous story-line and the sing along that went with it. Big giggle before bed. It's funny that they were looking for the book when we were in the bookstore just the other day and were rather disappointed when the store didn't stock them.
This would be one of the Christmas gift that Rereading this book before I wrap them as Christmas presents for my two adolescent boys brought me back to the time when I was made to read this book almost every night before bed!
This would be one of the Christmas gift that they would treasure, I reckon! If only they care to read books as they used to! Jan 25, Brandon rated it liked it Recommended to Brandon by: I did not appreciate the villainization of the dingo in this story.
Tips to share: Wombat stew
While I acknowledge that animals in general don't wish to be eaten, it is also unfair that the dingo couldn't get something to eat. The ending of this book is pure rubbish. You think it's a happy ending, right? The wombat is saved! But look kid, they poisoned that poor dingo. Do you know what's going to happen to that guy?
He's going to crawl around the I did not appreciate the villainization of the dingo in this story. He's going to crawl around the woods for a few hours, melting slowly and agonizingly from the inside out. All because some jerk wombat couldn't take one for the team. I recommend it.

Great Aussie children's book that should be in your child's collection. You can really play your voice in this story and even get into a bit of singing. May 29, Michelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: A fun read.
I am confused, however, by the constant references to the dingo as a 'clever' animal.
Fun making Wombat Stew with your kids
Are we as the readers privy to the dingo's self-perception? Is it a stereotype of dingos as an animal group? Or is this particular dingo normally of above average intellectual abilities?
This later answer, if correct, would make the other animals ability to dupe the dingo on this occasion an interesting phenomenon. Oct 03, Adrian J. It is almost animal racism. I've never understood the tendency to position some animals as evil or mean and others as always good. Has the writer ever encountered a koala, or an emu?
They're vicious; at least as much so as the dingo.
Also, why didn't it matter that the echidna eats other animals? Or the blue-tongue lizard? But the dingo? He's an evil monster! Rather silly, really. Dec 08, Monique rated it liked it Shelves: I have read this so many times I've lost count to the kids at school. They absolutely adore it! The words, they rhyming, the pictures, all of it! Me myself, I've never read this until this year and it's an okay book for me.
But considering it's for the kids who cares about my opinion! Kids love this. Someone should let the dingo know that wombats aren't very tasty. Aug 07, Tracey rated it it was ok.She may like more of this book as she gets older.
