The Incredible Billy Wild

Written by Joanna Nadin

The Incredible Billy Wild Synopsis

From the author of JOE ALL ALONE - now a major CBBC series. A story about courage, sacrifice and family - and how everyone has something incredible inside of them, just waiting to be discovered. For fans of Frank Cottrell Boyce and Eva Ibbotson. This cover comes in four different colours, supplied at random. Which one will you receive? When Billy Wild's teacher asks the class to write a letter to their god, Billy's request is simple: Please send me a dog. So when he discovers a greyhound hiding in the shed, he decides someone must really be listening. With the help of his brothers, Billy sets out to hide her from Dad, who's far too stressed to add a dog to the mix. But keeping a greyhound a secret is a difficult task, and when Billy's classmate Paris enters them all in a local talent show, it becomes even harder! Billy must make a big, brave, wild decision - but it's one that might save Dog and hundreds like her. And it might just make him incredible...

The Incredible Billy Wild Press Reviews

The author's ability to combine humour and skilful writing to show the power of love and family in overcoming all the odds make this a life-enchancing and highly recommended read. Billy Wild is incredible. * Books for Keeps * A beautifully written adventure story about a dog and the boy that found him, that perfectly captures contemporary family dynamics and a child's need to be 'incredible', wrapped up with a generous dose of humour and warm hearted love. * Annie Everall - SLG * A warm, accessible and funny celebration of finding faith in yourself. I can't recommend it enough! * Rhino Reads * A story about dogs, and love, and the power of words... * Achuka * Very funny and so loveable. -- Ann Giles * The Book Witch * Charming narrator and really touching character developments, as he sees the people around him in new light. A lovely warm-hearted read. * Peters * A boy, a dog and a whole lot of awesome.
