The Blurb On The Back:
Digger is the story of a shrewd, sensible wombat engineer named Digger-of-unnecessarily-convoluted-tunnels, who finds herself stranded in a fantasy world that is far from sensible. Thrust into the middle of a puzzling and often perilous situation involving gods, demons, destiny and redemption she finds her way based on a pragmatic honesty and the sincere belief in doing the right thing. He only wish is to return home, but along the way she makes enemies into friends, friends into heroes, the weak into warriors, and monsters into … better monsters.
Digger is a serious fantasy tale that manages to be both meaningful and light-hearted. It explores complex themes of honor, responsibility, and the grey areas between right and wrong, but it does so with a frequent application of humour, wit and absurdity that keeps the story lively. It is an adventure story that can be fully enjoyed by young adult readers, but it also has levels of complexity in its humour and themes that become deeper and more meaningful with age and experience.
