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!
She sleeps. She eats. She scratches.
She is training humans to become better pets.
She's a wombat...a wombat with attitude!
"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."
