"Hecht and Yee have continued to create compelling characters involved in lessons spotlighting life skills." --School Library Journal

In this Nocturnals Level 3 Early Reader, The Weeping Wombat, the Nocturnal Brigade--Tobin, a sweet pangolin, Bismark, a loud-mouthed sugar glider, and Dawn, a serious fox--hear Walter the wombat whimpering under a willow tree. Walter tells the friends that the other wombats call him a wimp because he weeps. The Nocturnal Brigade tell Walter that weeping is just another way of expressing how we feel and that, like a good laugh, a good weep can feel great.
