He is all alone.As he wanders through the great outback looking for her, Wombat meets all kinds of wonderful creatures - Kookaburra, Wallaby, Possum, Emu, Boy and Koala. None of them think very much of him, though.But when a fire sweeps through the bush, it is Wombat's skills which save the day, and afterwards everyone races off to find his mum and bring her back to him.

Little Harvey the Hypno-Roo Goes Walkabout is a helping book. It helps children to use their innate capacities for self-healing, both physical and psychological. This is accomplished through learning self-hypnosis. Self-hypnosis is easy for children. This book is meant for use by individuals 5 years old to 105 years old. It may be read to the younger child, with the caregiver reading the stories while the child participates in acting out the breathing and visualization exercises. As the child gets older, the caregiver may begin asking them questions in the WHAT WHAT Wombat section and, later, in the WDEP Platypus section. As the child ages, s/he may go back to the stories and, with the help of a caregiver, create scripts using the model in the back of the book. The breathing, scripts, imagination exercises, and WDEP procedures can be used throughout one's life.
