Chad Merchant reviews Bernard the Wombat

Bernard the Wombat“With a memorable cast of characters that would give the undersea world of SpongeBob SquarePants a run for its money, author Judyth Gregory-Smith has created an engaging and entertaining children’s book set in the unique landscape of Australia. Endemic ‘Down Under’ species such as koalas, kangaroos and wombats are joined by dingoes, rabbits, and even a pair of tiny pet fish named Moby and Jaws, all joining together in the cause of putting on a special Fair for all the animals of Ugly Gully.”

Judyth Gregory-Smith is a travel writer who has published three travel books and numerous articles in travel and in-flight magazines. The Guardian Weekly in London has taken much of her work as has The Weekend Australian in Sydney and recently The Expat magazine in Kuala Lumpur. Her book about Myanmar led to Judyth sponsoring educational courses which resulted in one student receiving a degree and others receiving technical diplomas. Judyth also ran a sewing business in Myanmar for several years. She paid the seamstresses for their work and then, when she sold it in Australia or Malaysia, she took the profit back to them. One of her current projects is Gifts of Sight, which entails collecting used glasses in Malaysia and the UK. Judyth then takes the glasses to isolated villages around Myanmar to people who have no financial hope of being able to buy them.
