The Wild Woods

By Simon James
Illustrated by Simon James

A heartwarming tale with an important ecological message about respecting an animal's natural habitat.

Grandad and Jess are walking together in the woods when they see a squirrel pass by. Jess wants to take it home with her as a pet, but Grandad says that you can't tame a squirrel. As Jess follows the creature deeper into the woods, she discovers more natural wonders and comes to understand that her grandad is right – the squirrel's proper home is the wild woods.
