What to expect

Wombat loves digging deep holes and thinking deep thoughts, but nobody thinks much of that until danger threatens the bush and he comes up with a great big idea…

One day Wombat digs the deepest hole he’s ever dug and crawls into the cool darkness to think. But when he climbs out again, he can’t see his mother anywhere. He is all alone.
As he wanders through the great outback looking for her, Wombat meets all kinds of wonderful creatures – Kookaburra, Wallaby, Possum, Emu, Boy and Koala, but none of them think very much of him.

But when a fire sweeps through the bush, it is Wombat’s skills which save the day, and everyone races off to find his mum and bring her back to him.
