These illustrated stories about best friends Fox and Wombat are jam-packed with action, adventure and humour and are perfect for beginner readers.
Wombat + Fox don't go looking for trouble, but the big city is a surprising place and mishaps have a way of changing the course of the day for Wombat and Fox, Croc, Bandicoot, the Hippo Sisters and the mischievous Five Monkeys. These are their stories.
