#BookReview: Braver: A Wombat's Tale by Suzanne Selfors & Walker Ranson

Synopsis: Braver: A Wombat’s Tale is an exciting new middle grade fantasy novel from Suzanne Selfors and Walker Ranson.

Young wombat Lola doesn’t quite fit in. Wombats are supposed to be shy and quiet, but Lola is talkative, curious, and always getting into trouble.

But when her village is attacked by a Tasmanian devil leading a group of swamp rats, Lola’s parents are captured.

To rescue them, Lola will have to leave home for the very first time and set off on a wild adventure. And even with the help of friends she meets along the way, Lola will need every ounce of her bold bravery to help rescue her family and save the kingdom!

This title will be released on June 23, 2020.
