User Reviews
  • I first borrowed this book at a local library but after reading it with my children we had to have it in our home library. Diary of a Wombat is a very amusing story of a particularly stubborn but cute wombat. I am not sure who it delighted more; my 5year old or myself. I am a Children's Book Writer and Illustrator and fussy abut the books I buy. I would recommend this as one of my favourite stories. The Nile Books were very helpful with a delivery hiccup so much so I wrote a review in gratitude. Thanks for great service.
