A Very Wombat Christmas
by ‘Hachette Australia’, ill. Lachlan Creagh (Lothian, 2015)
Creagh’s illustrations are lush and playful but it is unsurprising that no-one was willing to put their name to the text of this poetically dire Australian ‘Night Before Christmas’ pastiche.
Rhyming couplets are great
but DeVito and Schwarzenegger do not Twins make.
