What it’s about?
A baby appears in the woods. No one knows how she got there but the woodland creatures adopt her. She grows up talking like a bird and hunting fish with the bears.
One day a human family turn up in a car and take her back to the city. She is very unhappy and runs back to the forest, “because you cannot tame something so happily wild.”
What we think:
The Little Monster chose this gorgeous book because the little girl on the front “has got really big eyes”! It’s a really eye-catching cover that stood out on the library shelves.
The illustrations in this book are quite beautiful and very different from the normal style of picture book we read.
I asked the Little Monster if he would like to live in the forest. He replied:
“No I wouldn’t. The animals might eat me.”
He’s obviously not a wild child 😂
This really is a quite beautiful book and the art work is stunning. It would make a lovely gift for the wild child in your life. Go Wild at:
