Dutton Children's Books
Illustrated by Sophie Blackall
"This fun glimpse of the Australian outback is written in a rhyming text that's a joy to read aloud. Six woolly wombats go on a walkabout, and the dingo that spots them is sure that he's just discovered his lunch."

BABY'S GOT THE BLUES
Illustrated by Lauren Tobia
"The brilliant incongruity of a baby and blues music (usually featuring soured romance, bum luck and booze) hits all the right comedic notes. Baby’s refrain, repeated after each demoralizing episode, howls out for a singalong: "B-A-B-Y, baby, Got those…baby blues." Tobia’s pen-and-ink illustrations beg for repeat visits too, with their refreshing portrayal of a bustling urban family. ... Eye-squinting details (polka dots on the underside of a stuffed bunny’s ears, a paisley pattern on a blanket, etc.) and vivid colors energize these wonderfully ordinary scenes of moms and small children."
