Description

A hilarious view of Christmas as seen through the eyes of Mothball the wombat.


Christmas comes but once a year and it's just as well for Santa's reindeer who have to fight with Mothball for the carrots left out for them by the local children. And when Mothball takes an unexpected sleigh ride, it's not just Santa who faces the prospect of getting stuck in the chimney.


Christmas from a wombat's eye view is always going to be interesting - especially when that wombat is Mothball!

Review quote

Praise for Diary of a Wombat:


'French and Whatley have conjured an affectionate, believable wombat self-portrait.' New York Times Book Review


'Bruce Whatley's illustrations bring the story to life in a way that is both endearing and amusing. It's easy to see why this book has won several awards in Jackie French's native Australia. It deserves to be a huge hit here too, as it feels really fresh and original.' Publishing News
