Diggory Wombat Goes Flying Part 2


I’m sharing the story with you in serial fashion, two pages a day, over a 9 day period.

PART 1

Writing Translated

PG 3: It seemed easy enough. Run, flap your arms, and jump. Diggory ran, flapping his arms as fast as he could, but when he jumped …

PG 4: … he fell to the ground with a thump! “I need to be higher,” he thought.

Stay tune for Part 3, tomorrow!

Details Behind the Story

Way back in June, for his July birthday, my hubby asked for a follow-up story to the Diggory Wombat Gets Lost book that I wrote and illustrated for him. Unfortunately, my Muse wasn’t interested so, after months of dithering, I wrote and illustrated the book in 4 days!

This book was done in one of Hahnemühle’s ZigZag accordion books. The book is one long sheet, folded into 18 pages. I love working on this paper!

  1. Diggory Wombat just might be the first wombat that flies, fingers crossed ! I love the Hahnemühle’s ZigZag accordion books too !

  2. I love how determined Diggory is to learn to fly, and then how vulnerable after his effort has failed. We humans do much the same as we try to do new things that take effort and practice, often landing on our rears before we become successful.
