The Wombles

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

Certain that he is the bravest, most adventurous and perhaps even the handsomest of all the Wombles, Bungo is looking forward to his new job of tidying up the mess left by careless humans. A wayward umbrella, a life-like snowman and a landslide with a near-miss make this young Womble’s first year out of the burrow a very exciting one indeed.

The Wombles are back in a newly published series of the well-loved tales. Although written in 1968, this series of adventures with their timely messages about recycling and caring for the environment are sure to captivate a new generation of readers.
