In Wombat's Friend, the wombat we met in Wombat's Secret is told she's strange because of her friendship with the wallaby. She must work out what is important to her the opinions of others, or her friendship.
There are three species of wombat the common wombat (the main character in this story and the wombat who falls asleep are both common wombats), the southern hairy-nosed wombat (like the wombat who calls her strange), and the rare northern hairy-nosed wombat.
