About the Book

Enjoy this colour-illustrated children’s book as you read The Adventures of Harry Wombat and Friends and discover the world of Australian native animals.

Harry Wombat is a very young, very adventurous, wombat who finds himself lost and far from home after he is coaxed into a car by two small children. Once he escapes the car, he discovers he still has to escape from the claws of an eagle and the jaws of a fox.

Perhaps, with some help from a friendly frilled-neck lizard named Brodie, a huge native bird named Mr. Emu (who cannot fl y), and a kangaroo named Ellie Roo, Harry Wombat might just survive his adventures in the Australian desert and make his way home to his worried mother.

About the Author

Margaret. L. Young (nee Dyer) was born in the 1930s in Kellerberrin in Western Australia and grew up on a sheep, wheat, and dairy farm during the depression years. As she was denied an education when her school was closed during World War II, she mustered her courage in the late 1990s and enrolled in a computer course and began to write and illustrate children’s books expressing her knowledge and love for Australia’s native animals. The Adventures of Harry Wombat and Friends is her first published book. Her second book, Meggie and the Dingo, is soon to be published.
