The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Richard and Judy Children's Book Club selection 2011 - Fluent Readers
The classic stories of the Wombles are back! Great Uncle Bulgaria, Tobermory, Bungo and the rest – these heroes of recycling who lived underneath Wimbledon Common appearing in the early morning to tidy up after the humans had gone home - were well-ahead of their time when they were first published. But their delightful individual characters and their combined charm brought them a devoted following as they pottered about their business in endearing adventures involving gathering and sorting rubbish, braving meetings with humans and dogs and, in the nicest way possible, making sure the world is a better place.
The Wandering Wombles is also recently released.
The Wombles by Elisabeth Beresford
The Wombles is the first ever Wombles book and introduces the stern but kindly Great Uncle Bulgaria; Orinoco, who is particularly fond of his food and a subsequent forty winks; general handyman extraordinaire Tobermory, who can turn almost anything that the Wombles retrieve from Wimbledon Common into something useful; Madame Cholet, who cooks the most delicious and natural foods to keep the Wombles happy and contented; and, last but not least, Bungo, one of the youngest and cheekiest Wombles of all, who has much to learn and is due to venture out on to the Common on his own for the very first time...
'A lively, entertaining and humorous book, stuffed with ingenious ideas and endearing characters'
'Over 40 years after the original book, The Wombles is reprinted, their recycling ways more relevant than ever'
