Diary of a Wombat is an award winning Australian story that has been exciting Australian families for several generations, and is one of Jackie French’s most popular books.

What exactly do Wombats do all day?

Once there was a wombat, round, brown and stroppy, who taught humans to be her servants and leave out rolled oats in homage?

She ripped up doormats, the washing; shoes left outside, the mop; chewed holes in doors and gnawed at window frame.
