Synopsis

Diary of a Wombat by Jackie French

A wombat's work is never done...Take a trip with a wombat, and discover the ins and outs of her day in this modern classic Australian picture book. There are holes to be dug and territory to be defended - and don't forget all the eating and sleeping that needs to be squeezed in too!

Reviews

'French and Whatley have conjured an affectionate, believable wombat self-portrait.'

'Bruce Whatley's illustrations bring the story to life in a way that is both endearing and amusing. It's easy to see why this book has won several awards in Jackie French's native Australia. It deserves to be a huge hit here too, as it feels really fresh and original.'
