What to expect

A wombat’s work is never done…

The star of the international bestseller Diary of a Wombat is back – with a new mouth to feed! Cuter, stroppier and even more determined than her mother … meet Mothball’s baby.

Like any growing family, this baby wombat and her mum are finding it hard to fit into their home. When setting out to dig a new, bigger hole with room for them both, Shaggy Gully’s newest resident gets some help from a friend, causes more mayhem than Mothball ever did, and sorts things out in hilarious style.

Critics Review

  • ‘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
