Lucky readers – here’s a return to Big Sky Mountain to spend time with Rosa and Grandma Nan. Rosa is now very much at home there and not only is her grandma building her a log cabin of her very own, but she has lots of friends among the animals who live in the surrounding fields and forests. All the animals though are frightened of the wolves, even new arrivals, a group of huge bison. When Rosa finds a lost wolf cub, can she persuade them to help her reunite the little creature with its lost family? Mixing a very real sense of the beauty of nature and wild things with a warm story of home and community, this is another satisfying and spellbinding story for young readers who will dream of living a life like Rosa’s in a cosy cabin, surround by furry and feathered friends and with a whole wild world to explore. Alex Milway’s illustrations catch all the fun and thrills perfectly.
August 2021 Book of the Month | Young readers who like animals and dream of exciting outdoor adventures with just a touch of magic, will love Alex Milway’s new series. Rosa doesn’t know what to expect when the tiny plane drops her off at her Grandma Nan’s house on Big Sky Mountain. It’s deep in the wilderness, about 200 miles from the shops, and the nearest neighbour is a moose called Albert. Albert is a talking moose in fact and Rosa quickly makes friends with a whole host of other animals, all perfectly able to have a chat. Adventures come thick and fast, and Rosa finds herself relying for help on these capable animals. It’s great wish-fulfilment stuff, who wouldn’t want to live with animal friends and an unflappable grandma in the middle of such beautiful countryside. The animal characters provide lots of humourous moments and beneath it all there are important messages about the environment too. Wild, and gently wonderful.
