Wombats are cuddly-looking, slow-moving Australian animals. Their favorite activities are eating, sleeping, and digging holes. Here, in the words of one unusually articulate wombat, is the tongue-in-cheek account of a busy week; eating, sleeping, digging holes . . . and training its new neighbors, a family of humans, to produce treats on demand. This entertaining book, with its brief, humorous text and hilarious illustrations, will endear the wombat to young children, who may recognize in the determined furry creature some qualities that they share.

My proposed alternate title: If You Give a Wombat a Carrot.

A wombat is an endearing little pest as he attaches himself to a family who, in what becomes a moment to be regretted, shares some carrots with him.

A fun way to learn about a strange little animal from Australia. ( )

Amy was absolutely right. Wombats are AMAZING. And I am glad to see that they enjoy carrots.

This might be the cutest wombat ever to wombat. I particularly enjoy her claws. ( )

Book description
A wombat's diary reads with entry after entry of calm, quiet, predictable entries about eating, sleeping and scratching. Until! A human family moves into the area! Suddenly the wombat's diary is filled with new entries of new discoveries and of training the humans. Inevitable conflict ensues, but eventually a peaceable truce is worked out. This is a good book for talking about diary-writing and blogging, and for talking about human impact on the animal's habitats.
