Maddie Frost

We're delighted to welcome back author-illustrator Maddie Frost to discuss her newest graphic novel, WOMBATS!: Go To Wizard's Wharf.

Cheerful, hilarious, and wholesome, it is perfect for fans who laughed out loud reading Baloney and FriendsNarwhal and Jelly, and Cookie and Broccoli, as well as for animal lovers, reluctant readers, and families who enjoy amusement park shenanigans with a touch of magic.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Pickles decides it's time to make good on an IOU that Albert forgot he gave him four years ago and requests that they take a trip to Wonder Wharf! Albert begrudgingly agrees to accompany his best friend, but amusement parks aren't really his thing. Pickles is determined to make Albert feel the magic around him, but even after exploring all the rides, games, mazes, and prizes that Wizard's Wharf has to offer, Albert still isn't as wowed by this environment as his friend is.

Albert doesn't want his practicality to ruin his friend's IOU day, so they continue exploring the park and run into their friend and neighbor, Platters, who's working as a ride mechanic. Platters offers to take them on a tour of a top secret ride that's still under construction, but when the ride has a slight malfunction and the three of them are separated, Albert and Pickles will have to rely on how well they know each other, and maybe even a little magic, to help them find their way out.
