Mike Skillicorn’s The Way Home: The Wobbly Wallaby Book Three continues with the struggles of Wally, Peg, Jake, and their newfound friends during their journey. After surviving a massive attack from the dingoes, Wally and his friends left Rocky Hill in search of a new home away from dangerous predators. During their journey, Wally the wallaby faced several struggles because of his wobbly knee. The condition made him feel insecure and embarrassed. He was the only wallaby with a wobbly knee. Still, he had other things to worry about. He wondered if they finally found the island safe from predators. Will he still continue his journey in search of the ocean? Why was he so determined to see the ocean? Is it because he doesn’t know what it is? Is he fit to be a leader if he can’t even hop in a straight line? The once determined wallaby was now facing a dilemma. What was this trip to the ocean really all about?

The Way Home: The Wobbly Wallaby has a highly creative storyline that is both educational and inspirational. Mike Skillicorn’s work expanded my knowledge about wallabies and other animals I’m not quite familiar with such as dingoes and Tasmanian devils. It also motivated me to think more positively during moments when I start to question the progress I’ve made in my journey. Wally’s character taught me a lot of things and the most important lesson I learned from him is embracing one’s imperfections. Aside from Wally the Wallaby, I was also amazed by Bongo and Horatio, the Tasmanian devils. Despite being lost, Bongo never gave up even when Horatio told him there was no hope. His perseverance and a positive mindset are what helped both of them get home. I’ll always keep these lessons in mind especially during trying times. This book is a praise-worthy and well-written piece and I found it well worth the read.
