A hilarious view of Christmas as seen through the eyes of Mothball the wombat.
Christmas comes but once a year and it’s just as well for Santa’s reindeer who have to fight with Mothball for the carrots left out for them by the local children. And when Mothball takes an unexpected sleigh ride, it’s not just Santa who faces the prospect of getting stuck in the chimney.
Christmas from a wombat’s eye view is always going to be interesting – especially when that wombat is Mothball!
