LoveReading View on Wildwood

This delightful book isn’t easy to categorise. Written and illustrated by a husband and wife team this surreal, fairytale-like story is full of adventure and excitement – beginning with the abduction of a one year old, twenty-five pound, baby boy abducted by a flock of crows!
