In this companion to At the Beach, our family goes on a holiday at Wombat Flat: a bushland setting where they enjoy all the quintessential Australian bush holiday activities.

'Wombat Flat's the best! We camped out near the Cascades, stayed up all night to see the sunrise, nearly got snowed in at Mt Misery . and rode across the Razorback. And a squillion other things that you'll find out when you come with us to Wombat Flat!'

An irresistible companion to the best-selling At the Beach, guaranteed to occupy children for hours as they search the illustrations for the people, creatures and activities identified in the very funny text.


'Text and illustrations are so integrated and so full of wit, humour and fascinating detail I laughed out loud and guffawed but there is also beauty. At times Harvey seems to distil the essence of the Australian bush.Here is a treasure of unfailing pleasure reassurance that Australia does still produce great comic and narrative art.' Maurice Saxby, Magpies Vol 20 No 5 Nov 2005.

'Hilariously illustrated you can spend hours spotting every comical event that the artist has so skillfully included.' AB+P Sept 2005.
