It's very hot in the Outback. The poor wombat is very, very hot indeed.
The wombat decides to build a swimming pool, so he can cool down. Of course that means a lot of hard, hot work first. Who will help him dig a hole?
"Not I," said the galah, "ask the kookaburra."
"Not I," said the kookaburra, "ask the currawong."
"Not I," said the currawong, "ask the galah."
"No worries," said the wombat. "I'll do it myself."
A delightful take on 'The Little Red Hen' with wonderfully rhythmic language and beautiful illustrations.
