Product description

Wombat loves to dig. One day, he digs the deepest hole he’s ever dug and crawls into the darkness to think. But when he climbs out a bit later, he can’t find his mother. He is all alone! As Wombat wanders through the bush looking for her, he meets all kinds of creatures: Kookaburra, Wallaby, Possum, Emu, Koala and Boy. None of them thinks very much of Wombat and his digging – until danger threatens, and he comes up with a brilliant idea!

“An exceptional book. Wonderful to read aloud.” Naomi Lewis, Daily Telegraph

“Warm, soft pastel drawings by Christian Birmingham distinguish every page… The illustrations are zoologically correct but the wombat still has the goofy, amiable charm of a cartoon character.” Observer
