When Willow meets the Wild Things she knows her life is never going to be the same again. Strange things happen in The Wilderness. It holds more than you could possibly imagine: secrets, shadows, a witch. Even a monster. Are you brave enough to come? Because the moment you step across the boundary, you'll be changed forever.

"A wild tale ideal for readers stuck inside"

My son read it out loud in instalments and, I confess to you but have not to him, that on the first night, when he’d stopped for bed a few chapters in, I continued to the end without him, so keen was I to discover the denouement. It was worth it — and just as good the next night, read again together. Lewis’s message — who’s to say your imagination isn’t also your reality? — feels particularly pertinent at the moment.
