The first in a fantastic series by a master of wit and fun, starring ten children and two teachers and the hilarious adventures they get up to on their first ever school camp.
Meet the Wombats. They are going on their first school camp ever, with their teachers Mrs Nott and Ms Annabel.
Naucia's a bit posh, Audrey's a literary genius, Hughie's scared of nothing.
Ima loves baking, Ollie's small and fast, and Sardinia does magic tricks.
Albert knows everything, Dante's never without his ball, Ava wants to win.
Freddie has one eye, Alecia hates everything, and Horrie loves his pet rat (or is it an antechinus?).
Join the Wombats as they explore, build, cook, perform, climb, jump, scare each other silly and have the time of their lives.
