Call me a fool, but I hadn’t realised the Wombles were in a book before they were on television. I’ve enjoyed their programme and I know of some of their ways, I know they wish me a Wombling Merry Christmas but when I saw there was a book and did a bit of investigation, I realised I didn’t know very much about the Wombles at all!
So, to start at the beginning was glorious, and this book is so lovely. A couple of wombling adventures, mostly featuring Bungo, introduce you to this world of tidy litter-picking creatures, inhabiting our world alongside but mostly ignored by human kind.
It’s a fabulous, imaginative, children’s book, and I just can’t understand why I haven’t read it before. I should probably be embarrassed about loving it quite so much at this point in my life, but hey, cute furry bear-like creatures having adventures is right up my street!
