Photo-packed series explores the stories and science behind animal sanctuaries. An up-close look at what life is like at a real wombat sanctuary in Australia--straight from a wombat herself in a nonfiction chapter book for elementary-aged readers. Includes full-color photos, graphics, and maps.

When a new baby wombat shows up at Sleepy Burrows Sanctuary in Australia, Chance, the veteran wombat, is excited to show the new gal the ropes. Before any animal can be successfully released, many things have to happen. After rescue comes recovery, then rehabilitation, and finally, release. Those are animal-sanctuary tenets--an animal will remain safe until release or until it dies. For Chance and the new wombat, Panzer, this means learning how to find food, dig, and find a lifelong companion. Readers will love Chance, Panzer, and the crew of wombats. Other books in the photo-packed Sanctuary Stories series include Sweet Senior Pups.

Booklist Review: "Baby wombats are pink, hairless, cute, and cuddly; but without the protection of their mother's pouch, they are vulnerable and susceptible to almost certain death. The wombats' home in the Australian Outback also faces threats, from climate change, natural predators, illegal poaching, human population growth, and increased motor traffic. Enter Donna and Phil and their Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary in Gundaroo, Australia, where they may care for up to 30 wombats at one time. Running the sanctuary is a full-time job, and this narrative text describes life at Sleepy Burrows in an unconventional way through the voice of a wombat. Readers learn about these amazing creatures by following the story of Panzer, a tiny wombat whose mother was killed by a vehicle. Despite being told by Chance, another wombat in the sanctuary, the information is credible. The narrative describes Panzer's stages of growth as she moves toward living in the wild, and it's interspersed with photographs and informational text boxes. The author includes a glossary, bibliography, websites, information about supporting sanctuary efforts, and photo credits.--J. B. Petty Copyright 2018 Booklist"
