Wild Child

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Lorna Freytag

A beautiful and unique photographic picture book for the wild child in everyone.

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!

  • Celebrates the beauty of the great outdoors and the allure of the wild.
  • The hardback was such a success it had to be reprinted!
  • Visually stunning photographic illustration intensified by variations in scale.
