The first book in the internationally-beloved Little Wombat series about a playful little wombat exploring and adventuring through the world around him.

Sometimes I like to curl up in a ball, So no one can see me, Because I'm so small.

Little Wombat spends a day doing his favourite things: strutting around and around like a pigeon until he falls down, sticking out his tongue and pulling funny faces. And then he jumps as high as he can and sees how much noise he can make when he lands. But when the sun sets and the day ends he does the thing he likes best of all: going back home to his mother and curling into a ball. Good night!
