Monkey Baa Theatre Company joined us all the way from Australia for a live digital engagement on our Facebook! Company Director Eva Di Cesare shared a bedtime reading of Diary of a Wombat along with some storytelling about the company and their connection to the book’s author Jackie French and illustrator Bruce Whately. There was even an opportunity at the end to field some questions from the audience.

Millions of young people around the world have adored the multi award-winning picture book, Diary of a Wombat written by Australian Children’s Laureate, Jackie French, and illustrated by Bruce Whatley, which Monkey Baa Theatre Company has brought to life in their stage production through the magic of puppetry and live music. In the book, you'll meet Mothball, the naughtiest wombat in Australia. Bored with her daily routine, Mothball goes in search of shelter and food, creating chaos in the lives of the humans around her. We can't wait to share this story with you!
