When Sebastian was discovered beside the body of his dead mother on the side of a road, he was just four months old. Near death himself, the tiny wombat was nursed by the author until he reached full maturity, and finally returned to the wild. When you read this book you'll learn just how Sebastian's hat came to play such an important part in his life. 'Sebastian Lives in a Hat' was voted Best Children's Book in the 1985 Whitley Awards given by the Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales, and was short listed for the 1986 Australian Picture Book of the Year award.
