Batter Up Wombat

Average rating
5 out of 5
Based on 3 Ratings and 3 Reviews

Book Description
The new kid in town is a wombat from Down Under. He's having a tough time fitting in, so he tries to join the baseball team. They're excited to see a "Wham-bat" hit, but baseball seems to him like a strange game indeed as his literal interpretations of the lingo, such as "stealing third base," lead to hilarious, and ultimately victorious, results.
