About the Author
"Tep's encouraging message about doing what you love despite not being the greatest of all time will spur children to explore life's joys just for the pleasure it brings....This rollicking fable will resonate with aficionados, dilettantes, and prodigies everywhere."
- Kirkus Reviews
"What a delightful picture book. Competition, collaboration, wombats! The illustrations are bold and hilarious, the text is full of humor and heart. Like the wombats, they work together to make something wonderful."
- Corey R. Tabor, author-illustrator of the 2022 Caldecott Honor Book Mel Fell
"Wally the World's Greatest Piano-Playing Wombat is a charming story about competitiveness and creativity, told with sly humor and wit. It definitely resonated with us as artists, and its message will resonate with any budding artist, musician, or competitive creative. Both the illustrations and text are a delight."
- The Fan Brothers, authors/illustrators of the 2021 New York Times New York Public Library Best Illustrated Children's Book, It Fell From the Sky
"What a book. What a wombat! Wally is a wonder. Forget the piano, his true greatness is that he is every creative kid and adult everywhere. Through Tep's humorous text and Pintonato's hilarious illustrations, Wally reminds us all that we don't have to be the greatest in the world at our creative pursuits to find the greatest joy in pursuing them."
- Jarrett Pumphrey, co-author/illustrator of The Old Truck, a 2020 Best Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly
