Read full description of the books Wombat Divine:I picked this up because I think Mem Fox has a good hit/miss ratio... The cover I have isn't immediately christmassy, and I thought Wombat Divine was referring to an especially good wombat - so I was initially suprised that this was a Christmas book.
This book has everything you could ask for - great illustrations, a smidge of rhythm and rhyme, Trouble, and the happy ending.
Three small aspects that I really liked:
* The small-town Hall where the Nativity Play is held - this is almost certainly a Memorial Hall, and they are found in just about every small town in Australia.
* The second last page has the holly wrapping paper and the fake pine Christmas tree - so out of place in the Australian bush!
* Platypus snoozing off the pudding in the corner after a long Christmas day!
