Description

Sometimes feelings can go wild. . .

Lily is a little girl with big emotions. And sometimes she can't keep herself from acting out and being naughty. Or rather, her imaginary friend, Tiger, is the naughty one. So when Tiger convinces her to run away, they have a blast stomping and jumping and going wild. But what is Lily to do when their adventure starts to feel a bit too wild?

Tiger Wild gently illustrates how sometimes we all need a little help when certain feelings are hard to express. For there is a time to be wild and a time to be mild.


About the Author

Gwen Millward grew up in the heart of the Welsh countryside. She had her heart set on becoming a naturalist when she was five and was quite obsessed with David Attenborough. She filled her bedroom with jars full of caterpillars and tubs of tadpoles, much to the annoyance of her sister (they shared a room). She studied illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art where her passion for picture books began. She lives in Bristol.
