Shortlisted for the Little Rebel Children's Book Award 2013.
Meet Wild Child! She's spirited and curious. She's fearless and free. She lives alone in a mystical, prehistoric world - the last child in a dramatic landscape, where anything could happen. Follow her through her day as she explores her world from the foot of the mountain to the heart of the wood; while she runs with the rabbits and swims with the fish - but beware of the grown-ups and sensible shoes! Join the magic and unleash the wild child in you.

Synopsis

Wild Child by Jeanne Willis
