Bogtrotter

By Margaret Wild
Illustrated by Judith Rossell

Bogtrotter doesn’t ever stop running, until the day he meets the frog. Now in paperback!

Every morning Bogtrotter runs across the bog, up the bog, down the bog and around the bog until it’s time to go home. Sometimes he wishes things would change, but he doesn’t know how or what or why. Until one afternoon, when he picks a flower for the first time in his life …

  • A delightful picture book from internationally award-winning author Margaret Wild, with gorgeous illustrations from acclaimed illustrator Judith Rossell.
  • With Margaret Wild’s trademark subtlety and elegance, Bogtrotter explores what happens when we challenge ourselves, try new things and look beyond our own mushy bogs …
  • Simple, accessible text.
