The school sports day is on and Mothball wombat is competing! She eats. She sleeps. She scratches. But can this wombat win?
This is a book about a wombat ... winning. Yes, Mothball has become an athlete, albeit a little accidentally. In her never-ending quest for carrots Mothball stumbles upon the children at the local school competing in the school sports. And despite her somewhat limiting physique and lack of training, Mothball manages to go home with a gold medal.
Why puff and pant when you can eat, sleep and scratch?
Wombat Wins by author Jackie French and illustrator Bruce Whatley is read by Olympic Rower, Helen Glover.
