From the Publisher:
Wombats are Australian animals that look a little like bears, but smaller. Their favorite pastimes are sleeping, digging, and eating, especially eating carrots. In this comical picture book, the feisty, determined wombat star of Diary of a Wombat returns to celebrate Christmas, wombat style. She goes head-to-head with some strange creatures, which look to us like Santa's reindeer, in competition for carrots?and wins. Then, an accidental stowaway on Santa's sleigh, she visits countries around the world and learns that there are carrots everywhere, more than she'd ever imagined. No wonder she isn't hungry for treats on Christmas morning! Funny, engaging illustrations complement the brief text for a unique wombat's-eye view of a favorite holiday.
Annotation:
Aside from sleeping, scratching, and eating grass, Mothball the Wombat's favorite treat is carrots. When she discovers a plateful of the delicacies on December 24th, she is horrified to realize that she must compete with some decidedly odd creatures in order to eat them. The creatures are Santa's reindeer, and soon Mothball has snuck onto their sleigh in order to ferret out carrots around the world. With charmingly understated but spot-on artwork, this is a companion to THE DIARY OF A WOMBAT.

Praise

"The brief, ironic text and the humorous expressions of the wombat and reindeer are delightfully comical, providing a satisfying story that will appeal to the whole family, from toddlers through adults." (starred review) 09/01/2012
