Every volume is better than the last

spoilers for the earlier ones.

Digger and Murai head off to find the monastery that might have knowledge. Grim Eyes is sent with them. It involves a guide who needs to be warned against tall tales, the Shadowchild conveying a prophecy from a slug and otherwise helping, deciding to go back and finding they can't, the impossibility of onomatopoeia for ethereal chanting, ghosts, jade-eyed dwarves, questions answered, and more.

Story tightens as the ending approaches.

a journey, an arrival, a demon, and a man with a stag's head. a favorite character departs (but not quite forever). and we finally meet another wombat! sort of. also, the summary of the previous volume at the start of this one might be the funniest thing in all six books.
I'm sorry to be nearly finished (one more volume) with this inventive and funny tale. I really enjoy the various characters, particularly our hero, Digger (the wombat). I am really going to be pushing this at my summer reading school visits this year!
A really fun, quick read with a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor. The art style compliments the quirky cast of characters well; who'd have thought a story about a wombat would be so enjoyable?
