Diary of a Wombat

Diary of a Wombat, written by Jackie French and illustrated by Bruce Whatley, is a charming and funny book.  It is the diary entries of a wombat over thecourse of a week, and how the wombat discovers the joys of being a pest to a nearby family who will give in to a persistent wombat.  It is all told from the adorable wombat’s perspective, so we are able to hear about its battle with the welcome mat (which the wombat won), the wombat’s discovery that destroying property is a good way to get attention and carrots, and how to train your family to learn when to give carrots and when to give oats (or both!)

It’s not a long book so it’s a good choice for a bedtime story. It’s not for the very young, maybe for ages 5-8; the younger ones aren’t likely to get the humour.  But the parents will!!

"Also discovered a new source of carrots."
