The Secret Wild

£7.99

Fern has spent her whole life in the rainforest with her botanist parents, and loves nothing more than climbing, exploring and talking to the trees. But when she suddenly has to leave all that behind and move to London, finding only an eccentric uncle for company, Fern feels entirely uprooted. That is until she finds a little plant, one that can move and dance and seems to understand her every word. Can a plant really be this special – and be her new best friend? But when the secret plant starts to wilt, Fern finds that she needs her new London family to solve the mystery of where her magical friend came from – and how to save its life.

Description

A fantastical, botanical adventure about friendship, bravery – and finding home in a new place.

Fern has spent her whole life in the rainforest, and loves nothing more than climbing, exploring and talking to the trees. When she suddenly has to leave all that behind and move to London, with only an eccentric uncle for company, Fern feels entirely uprooted.

But when she meets a little plant that can understand her every word, it seems that things are looking up! That is until strange things start happening in the city: giant lily pads on the Thames, monkey vines on the London Eye, and now her new friend is starting to wilt?

Can they solve this growing mystery together – before it’s too late?

“I think kids are going to go wild about this book! It’s a real page-turner with oodles of heart – pacy, intriguing and full of fun.” Sophie Kirtley, author of The Wild Way Home
