Omnibus edition of four tales of the Muddleheaded Wombat, and his friends Mouse and Tabby. Sort of an Australian version of Winnie the Pooh in that they stumble into adventures, often propelled there by Wombat's clumsiness or hunger, or Tabby's vanity. Mouse usually is the agent of their salvation with his clear thinking.

Another excellent whimsical children's story. It is highly recommended that you inflict this on your children, anyway. Can't have too many good Australian animal tales for kids, I think, so it is quite hard to go past this one. It should get a laugh or two.
