It is raining and Willow the wombat is bored, his mum won’t let him play outside in the rain. Then he remembers the old chest in the cellar. When he opens it he discovers loads of interesting things including; flying overalls and his grandfather’s journal. With nothing else to do Willow starts to read the journal and quickly gets swept up into Grandpa’s amazing adventures.
A wonderfully fun story. The adventures happen at quite a pace. There is plenty of text, which makes it a good choice for the 4-5 year old who is not yet reading by themselves. The illustrations are detailed and glorious. The other good thing about this is it is full of a variety of Australian animals.
