Wombats is a small book packed with a lot of facts.

An easy reader book designed primarily for young readers, each page of large-print text is preceded by a full-color, full page photograph. The pictures are clear and show their subjects well. In total, there are five photographs of Hairy-nosed wombats, and three of Bare-nosed wombats. Each page of text covers one topic such as where wombats live, what they look like, and the wombat's future. There are nine such pages.

The book is a good introduction to wombats for young children with enough pictures to keep them interested. Although there are few words, the text contains a good deal of information. Wombats also contains a short glossary, and an index.

Part of The Australian Animal Library which consists of six books about Australian animals, including Kangaroos, Koalas, Tasmanian Devils, Dingoes, and Crocodiles.
