Jackie French is a prolific Australian writer of children's and adult books. Diary of a BABY Wombat follows the original Diary of a Wombat and lovers of the original will be charmed by this story too.

The baby wombat sleeps most of the day but when he wakes up, he needs to play. He meets a human baby and the two of them play, eat, and find mischief together. Intertwined in the amusing pictures is the wombats' search for a new hole that is big enough for the baby and his mom. The two stories don't fit together seamlessly and as an adult reading the story, I felt a bit jerked around. Younger readers won't notice or be bothered by these bumpy transitions.

The pictures are charming and younger readers will be delighted with the illustrations and the trouble that the wombat and his baby friend get into.
