  • This out of print classic will make the Wombat very real to you. In some ways, too real. The original has a forward by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

  • The text reflects metaphorically the constant struggle humanity has with nature. The vagaries of chance, and the stupidity of man combine to destroy the natural environment, and as a consequence, the harmony of being. The text does offer hope for survival, but starkly reminds us of its cost.

  • When a manmade fire sweeps through the Australian bush, birds and animals panic. Kangaroos flee. Koalas cling stupidly to trees. Dingoes turn and race towards the flames. We find ourselves rooting for a humble wombat as he tries desperately to reach the safety of a lake, waddling as fast as he can manage on "short, stubbed legs" as the racing fire bears down. The Death of a Wombat is a simple, imaginative and unusual little story. It's also strangely touching. As the author says, "Everything likes a waddler."
