One Very Tired Wombat




A delightful counting book featuring some very cheeky Australian animals and lots of humour.

How hard can it be to find a bit of peace and quiet?

Wombat is tired and just wants to rest. But it's hard to sleep during the day when a bunch of noisy birds want to sing and play. The magpies keep whistling, the fairy wrens are flitting about and don't even talk about the kookaburras.

Poor tired wombat. Will he ever get to sleep?

One Very Tired Wombat is a charming counting book featuring some very cheeky Australian animals.
