  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 May #2
    In this lovable sequel to Lester's Noni the Pony (2012) and Noni the Pony Goes to the Beach (2015), Noni the pony and her friends Dave (a dog) and Coco (a cat) are walking through the hills when they meet a little wallaby: "It's a wallaby joey, all on his own, / who says in a soft voice, ‘I want to go home.'" As they stroll down the road, they call out to Koala, Wombat, Emu, and other animals, but no one has seen the wombat family. Joey sniffles, then sobs, but when he goes home with Noni, Coco, and Dave, he finds his family there searching for him. Lester has a gift for writing verse that sounds completely natural when read aloud. Created with pencil, watercolors, and collage, her artwork features appealing characters and landscapes rendered in soft black lines, rounded forms, and rich, gentle hues. Even when Joey breaks down and cries, something in Lester's pleasing rhymes and pictures conveys the soothing message that all will be well. A satisfying, reassuring Australian picture book.
