About the Author

Jackie French AM is an award-winning writer, wombat negotiator, the 2014–2015 Australian Children’s Laureate and the 2015 Senior Australian of the Year. In 2016 Jackie became a Member of the Order of Australia for her contribution to children’s literature and her advocacy for youth literacy. She is regarded as one of Australia’s most popular children’s authors and writes across all genres — from picture books, history, fantasy, ecology and sci-fi to her much loved historical fiction for a variety of age groups. ‘A book can change a child’s life. A book can change the world’ was the primary philosophy behind Jackie’s two-year term as Laureate.

  3. Stephanie

    Great book but cover was damaged during posting

  4. Dianne W

    Simple story about a wombat’s life written in a diary format from the wombat’s point of view. Wombats are stubborn beasties with minds of their own and this book perfectly captures the nature of a wombat which will do its own thing regardless of consequences. And it’s beautifully illustrated by Bruce Whatley. Superb.Highly recommended.

  5. Alyson Jackson

    My 4yr old grandson lives in Sydney and I’m in qld and every Friday I face time him and read him a bedtime story. I found the wombat books have no story and boring to read

  6. Samnoelpearce

    A wonderful book.

  7. Ben Cody Kirk

    This is a wonderful gift for any child around the 3-7 age group.

  8. Katlin G.

    Fun book – funny tory just a bit repetitive to read all the sleeping times. Still a great book!

  9. Nat Sally
