Written by Jackie French and illustrated by Brice Whatley

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. The humorous text and hilarious illustrations will come to life with this gift set, which includes a plump plush wombat to play with.

Editorial Reviews

"hilarious yet realistic...a sumblime balance of the adorable charm of the creature, along with its drawbacks as an acquaintance." -School Library Journal

"tongue-in-cheek picture book...the often cuddly looking wombat may leave some readers envious of its languid lifestyle." -Publishers Weekly
