Think back to when you were a kid- when your imagination gave you the best play days ever!
Did you ever want to find fairies in the garden, meet a unicorn, ride a dragon or share a picnic with a mermaid? As a kid, you knew that just because you'd never seen these magical creatures, that didn’t mean they didn’t exist!
These Wild Things of stories and of the imagination were everywhere when we were children...but they were just shy, secretive, sometimes camouflaged and only revealed themselves to true believers.
This fun, fantastical guidebook helps children use their best imaginations to track dragons, create fashions fit for fairies, build snow unicorns, discover where trolls hide out and go on night hunts to capture Moon beam magic.
Search forests, meadows, fields, ponds, rivers and the seaside, as well as everyday places like school playgrounds, local parks or among the pots on the patio for these fantastical creatures of our childhood.
So switch on your imagination, use your senses, brush up on your pretend magic skills and take a giant leap into the world of the Wild Things.
