PG 17: “Shoulda thought about that BEFORE jumping off a hill,” bellowed the quoll, shaking his fist as Diggory. Then he stomped away as well. Diggory turned toward the platypus.
PG 18: The platypus has found a pond, and ignoring Diggory, slipped into the water and swam away. Suddenly, Diggory broke into a smile. “Swimming! That looks like fun!”
And that concludes the story of Diggory the Wombat. Hubby has already put in a request for another one, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. I have too many other stories I want to tell.
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!
