The Lore of the Wild

By nonfictioness

I am so pleased to announce my next book, an illustrated children’s non-fiction title The Lore of the Wild.

This book is a dream come true for me, creating an introduction to nature folklore for children and it includes incredible illustrations by the very-talented Aitch. Here is the blurb:

See nature in a whole new light with this enchantingly illustrated treasury of natural folklore and wild wisdom from around the world. Did you know that people used to believe that rabbits’ ears would twitch in the direction of a thunderstorm? That lily of the valley flowers were formed from fairies’ drinking cups? And that taking dandelions into the house would make you wet the bed? Traditional nature folklore can help us understand how our ancestors interacted with the world around them and allows us to view nature from a new perspective.

Brought to life with bright, folk art-inspired illustrationsdiscover the lore of:

  • An array of different animals, birds, and insects
  • All types of flowers, plants, and trees
  • The weather, sun, moon, and stars
  • Good and bad omens, and lucky charms

Lore of the Wild inspires appreciation of different cultures, as well as an engagement with the beauty of the natural environment.
