Diary of a Wombat


The Diary of a Wombat is a day by day account of the activities of ‘Mothball’ the Wombat.  Written in diary (recount) format, it introduces children to the days of the week (Monday to Sunday) and times of the day (Morning, Afternoon, Evening, Night) as Mothball goes about his wombat business.  The daily goings-on of Mothball the wombat are described in brief, one word sentences, (e.g. slept) with the illustrations providing much of the humour and additional meaning.  How does Mothball train his humans to do what he wants them to do?  Do humans make good pets?
