Following the adventures and misadventures of twelve knockabout kids and two teachers, this hilarious story is full of the brilliantly detailed pictures Roland Harvey is famous for.

Meet the Wombats:

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?).

The Wombats are going on their first camp ever, with their teachers Mrs Nott and Ms Annabel. Join them as they explore, build, cook, perform, climb, jump, scare each other silly and have the time of their lives.
