Diary of a wombat by Jackie French

She sleeps. She eats. She scratches. She is training humans to become better pets. She is Mothball‚ a wombat with attitude. Award−winning author Jackie French′s love of wombats comes alive in this cheeky observation of Mothball′s life‚ while Bruce Whatley′s captivating illustrations of Mothball′s antics shows just how entertaining and endearing wombats are to humans (from the publisher).
This is one of my favorite childrens books, and while it has been around for a number of years now, it still makes me laugh every time I read it. The story is short and easy to read and the illustrations bring Mothball to life. Enjoy!

Rating - I give this 5/5 GREAT!!

Get this from the library
