Wombat loves digging deep holes and thinking deep thoughts, but nobody thinks much of that until danger threatens the bush and the small wombat comes up with a great big idea...

One day Wombat digs the deepest hole heís ever dug and crawls into the cool darkness to think. But when he climbs out again, he canít see his mother anywhere. He is all alone. As he wanders through the great outback looking for her, Wombat meets all kinds of wonderful creatures Ė 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 Wombatís skills which save the day, and afterwards everyone races off to find his Mum and bring her back to him.
