Wild Child by Jeanne Willis and Lorna Freytag
Wild Child by Jeanne Willis and illustrated by Lorna Freytag, tells the amazing story of the very last wild child. She is free to swim with the shoal of fishes, to play amoungst the toadstools and to enjoy the freedom of the of the forest with her wild family and explains why she is the only one left, or is she? Jeanne Willis' story is wonderfully lyrical and expressive, making it a lovely reading experience. Exquisite illustrations by photographer Lorna Freytag take us on a journey with our adventerous friend, where we find ourselves wanting to roam the rich landscape with bears and explore the forests with wolves with her. We love her spirit!
