Best-selling picture book Diary of a Wombat is now available in a board book format for younger readers to chew and enjoy! A great gift for a toddler, this durable edition can be read over and over again and remain intact!

Book Description

Wombats are cuddly-looking, slow-moving Australian animals. Their favorite activities are eating, sleeping, and digging holes. Here, in the words of one unusually articulate wombat, is the tongue-in-cheek account of a busy week; eating, sleeping, digging holes . . . and training its new neighbors, a family of humans, to produce treats on demand. This entertaining book, with its brief, humorous text and hilarious illustrations, will endear the wombat to young children, who may recognize in the determined furry creature some qualities that they share.

About the Author

Jackie French is a highly esteemed writer for children and adults with more than 100 books to her credit. She lives in Australia with her family and usually one or more wombats.

About the illustrator

Bruce Whatley was born in Wales and now lives with his family in Australia. He has illustrated more than 50 children's books, some of which he also wrote.

    Comments about Diary Of A Wombat:

    My 7 year old son loved this book. It is easy to read for children learning to read. He has requested his own copy. Repetitive words, and an endearing story. Im sure he'll love the others in the series also.

      Jackie French

      Jackie French's writing career spans sixteen years, 42 wombats, 120 books for kids and adults, translations into nineteen languages, and slightly more awards than wombats, both in Australia and overseas (that's overseas awards, not overseas wombats).

      Her books range from provocative historical fiction such as Hitler's Daughter and They Came on Viking Ships to the hilarious international bestseller, Diary of a Wombat with Bruce Whatley, as well as many nonfiction titles such as The Fascinating History of Your Lunch, and To the Moon and Back (with Bryan Sullivan), the history of Australia's Honeysuckle Creek and man's journey to the moon.

      In 2000, Hitler’s Daughter was awarded the CBC Younger Readers’ Award. To the Moon and Back won the Eve Pownall Award in 2005. Macbeth and Son, and Josephine Wants to Dance were both shortlisted for the 2007 CBC Awards.
