A delightful counting book featuring a cast of cheeky Australian animals and lots of humour.

One wombat is very tired, and he just wants to rest. The birds try to be quiet – well, some of them, anyway – but it seems that they’re not as quiet as they think.

Poor tired wombat. Will he ever get some sleep?

One Very Tired Wombat is a charming counting book featuring some very cheeky Australian animals.

Reviews

This delightful counting picture book is cleverly written and designed . . . The alliterative and well-worked language works well being read aloud while many will delight in the beautiful illustrations.

Liz Derouet, Magpies

Counting books are a dime a dozen, but Renee Treml's imaginative language makes One Very Tired Wombat unique! … Full of alliteration and humour, this hardcover gem doubles as a learning tool for young ones practising counting.
