The Wombats Go on Camp
Following the adventures and misadventures of twelve knockabout kids and two teachers, this hilarious story is full of the brilliantly detailed pictures Roland Harvey is famous for.
Meet the Wombats:
Naucia's a bit posh, Audrey's a literary genius, Hughie's scared of nothing.
Ima loves baking, Ollie's small and fast, and Sardinia does magic tricks.
Albert knows everything, Dante's never without his ball, Ava wants to win.
Freddie has one eye, Alecia hates everything, and Horrie loves his pet rat (or is it an antechinus?).
The Wombats are going on their first camp ever, with their teachers Mrs Nott and Ms Annabel. Join them as they explore, build, cook, perform, climb, jump, scare each other silly and have the time of their lives.
'Roland Harvey is the master of detail - his wonderfully chaotic books always surprise.' The Sunday Age.
'Hilariously illustrated you can spend hours spotting every comical event that the artist has so skillfully included.' AB+P Sept 2005.
'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.'
