Morning: Slept.

Afternoon: Slept.

Evening: Ate.

Scratched.

Night: Ate.

A typical day. Don′t be fooled. This wombat leads a very busy and demanding life. She wrestles unknown creatures, runs her own digging business, and most difficult of all - trains her humans. She teaches them when she would like carrots, when she would like oats and when she would like both at the same time. But these humans are slow learners.

Find out how one wombat - between scratching, sleeping and eating - manages to fit the difficult job of training humans into her busy schedule.

    Comments about Diary of a Wombat:

    I bought this for my 4 year olds birthday and it has quickly become a favourite. Very funny to read the adventures that a wombat can get up to over a week. makes us laugh every time. Illustrations are gorgeous too.
