The Muddle-Headed Wombat on a Rainy Day

by Ruth Park

Condition: Very Good

1976 reprint of 1969 original

The Muddle-headed Wombat  is a classic of Australian children's literature. The lovable wombat tries to behave, but he somehow always gets into trouble, a characteristic with which any child can sympathize.

There was once a muddle-headed wombat sitting in the grass and feeling very lonely. A wombat is a square animal with thick hair like a door-mat, stumpy legs, and no tail to speak of. He has brown eyes and a comfortable, leathery flat nose like a koala. This wombat was lonely because he had no sisters or brothers or aunties or uncles, and besides, he had spent all his pocket money.

"I wish I had a friend," he thought, "a nice, comfy  little friend who would fit in my cardigan pocket. A wombat could have lots of adventures with a friend like that."
