Little Evie ventures into the wild woods with her basket of jam tarts and walks further and further into the trees, far from home... And in the heart of the wild wood Evie finds something dark and wild and beautiful with great big ears, all the better to hear her with.
Little Evie in the Wild Wood is a delightful story written by Jackie Morris and this time it has been illustrated by her good friend Catherine Hyde.
This isn't Little Red Riding Hood. As a child Jackie hated that story because of its darker wild ending. This is a story about a child going out into the world for the first time. Evie has a task. She has a basket to deliver for her grandmother. Whatever is at the heart of this book it is a gentle tale with hauntingly beautiful illustrations that lead you through the dark world of woodland magic.
This book is best enjoyed sitting by a log fire with a cup of tea and a plate of delicious jam tarts.
There is also a competition you can enter. For every copy of Little Evie you purchase you get an entry into a prize draw to try and win this gorgeous sketch of Evie by Catherine.
