Featuring gorgeous black and white photos of Melbourne and surrounds, Riley and the Grumpy Wombat combines photos, illustrations, adorable characters, humour and an adventuresome storyline in a travelogue-style book that showcases Melbourne at its very best.

I just loved the book design and... I just wanted to congratulate you on a terrific and innovative book. - author Di Bates
