About the Book

AN 'ICE AGE' MEETS DIARY OF A WOMBAT STORY

Dippy is a diprotodon, the BIGGEST, friendliest wombat who lived 100,000 years ago.

All Dippy wants is happy friends, a place to sleep and lots to eat.

Who knew that could be such an adventure?

Based on a concept by Ben Smith Whatley and brought to life by the creators of the international bestselling Diary of a Wombat, this is a hilarious story of prehistoric daring and chaos set in the fascinating world of ancient Australia megafauna.
