Wild
Paperback
20 pp / 27.3 x 23 cm

We think Emily Hughes just paints the most amazing pictures. Wild, like it's sister book, The Little Gardener, is a riot of the most amazing colours and images, so much so, you hardly need the text to tell the story.

Wild is a tale of a little girl brought up by animals, found by humans and brought back to 'civilisation'. The ensuing chaos, drawn in such vividly dark manner may be slightly offputting to very small readers, but, of course, it all turns out for the best.

With an obvious hark back to Romulus and Remus and a feel of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, this is an interesting tale with an underlying moral.

Recommended for ages 3 upwards
