    In this follow-up to Diary of a Wombat (2003), Baby Wombat is now writing his own diary about a life that is like his mum's—"Early morning: Slept. Slept. Late morning: Slept. Woke up"—but with a twist: "Smelled the flowers. Ate the flowers." The pacing of the spare text and the engaging illustrations combine humorously, especially when the baby wombat meets a human baby, and their antics mirror each other. Large areas of white space surround the whimsical acrylic illustrations, rife with subtle details, heightening the appeal of this cute picture book. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.
