In this beautiful picture book by Hawaiian artist Emily Hughes we meet a little girl who has known nothing but nature from birth she was taught to talk by birds, to eat by bears and to play by foxes she is unashamedly, irrefutably, irrepressibly wild. That is, until she is snared by some very strange animals that look oddly like her, but they don't talk right, eat right, or play correctly, she's puzzled by their behaviour and their insistence to live in these strange concrete structures known as 'apartments' there's no green here, no animals, no trees, no rivers. Now she lives in the comfort of civilization. But will civilization get comfortable with her? Wild is a 21st century response to Maurice Sendak's children's classic, Where The Wild Things Are. Awash with colour and full of atmosphere it offers visual treats to enchant children and indulge their wilder tendencies.
Filled with inventiveness, groundbreaking art and unmissable quirkiness, Emily's work is a beautiful amalgam of Sendak and Scarry's best qualities with a unique and fresh twist for a new generation
