Description
Wombat loves to dig. One day he digs a deep, deep hole and crawls inside to think. Wombat loves to think. But when he climbs out of his hole, he can't find his mother. He is alone -- though not for long. Wombat soon meets cackling Kookaburra, hopping Wallaby, swinging Possum, scampering Emu, dozing Koala, and hunting Boy. But though he climbs the highest hill, he still can't find his mother.Instead, he spots a fire, leaping from tree to tree. It's up to Wombat, a thinker and a digger, to do what he does best to see himself and the others safely through danger. And in a tender conclusion, his friends use their own gifts for flying and swinging, hopping and scampering, to reunite a worried Wombat with someone very dear.
