Illustrated by Christian Birmingham
Wombat just loves digging holes. So one day he digs the deepest hole he's ever dug and crawls into the cool darkness to think. But when he climbs out a little later, he can't see his mother. He is all alone. As Wombat wanders through the outback looking for her, he meets all kinds of wonderful creatures - Kookaburra, Wallaby, Possum, Emu, Boy and Koala. None of them think very much of a small wombat, though, until danger threatens the Bush and that small wombat comes up with a brilliant idea . . .
This funny and touching story is perfectly complemented by stunning illustrations which capture the essence and magic of the Australian bush.
