* * * * Stars (Great!)
Chance, the wombat, narrates a welcome to newly rescued “pinky” Panzer and shares wombat facts and information about the sanctuary and humans who have taken them in to raise and keep safe until such a time comes when they can return to the wild.  Details about wombat nature and habits is imparted in a fun, informative way as Chance offers advice and guidance.  Filled with photos of rescued wombats at different stages of development, kids who love animal stories (and anyone interested in wombats) will enjoy this entry in the True Tales of Rescue series.  Concludes with lots of back matter for further reading/research, websites to check out, ways you can help wombats/sanctuaries, a glossary, bibliography, Australian words and phrases, and an index.  A great package!
