The real adventure begins when Wombat finds a lost red panda Jun 15, 2008
The second volume in the delightful "Wombat Smith" series about an anthropomorphic wombat with a strong streak of curiosity, Wombat Smith: Beijing Breakaway! follows young Wombat on a trip to Beijing in order to take part in an international soccer camp. Wombat learns to play soccer, discovers the marvels and majesties of Chinese culture, and prepares to play in a real soccer tournament, all of which are exciting enough. But the real adventure begins when Wombat finds a lost red panda; his heart goes out to the unfortunate animal, and he tries to help it get back to the zoo. But when Wombat is mistaken for a thief trying to steal the panda, he gets caught in a whirlwind of events that threaten to keep him from the big game! An engaging story especially notable for its upbeat attitude and the main character's enthusiasm to thrive amid a strange new land.
