KIRKUS REVIEW

 The friends introduced in Wombat and Bandicoot (1990) are back in a charming ``Lift-the-flap Book.'' With the help of some other Australian animals, Bandicoot hides a present and prepares a surprise party; Wombat, meanwhile, less sleepy than he seems, searches unsuccessfully for his gift. Argent's beautifully designed, soft-textured art is enlivened by the brisk action (much of it behind the sturdy flaps), by the gaily-patterned fabrics on every page, and by the endearing gleam in Bandicoot's eye. Just right. (Picture book. 2-5)
