Wild Summer : Life in the Heat Hardback

Illustrated by Cinyee Chiu

Part of the Seasons in the wild series



"Gorgeous... a sunlit heat rises off the page, while the story addresses the changing climate with openness and hope." - Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian In this follow-up to Winter Sleep and Busy Spring, Wild Summer explores nature in summer. The beautifully-told story follows a young girl and her naturalist grandpa as they walk down a wild path towards the coast.

They spot amazing plants and animals. She is enchanted by the vibrancy of life around her, but asks: "Do plants and animals want summer to last forever?"Young curiosity is combined with old wisdom in a nature-filled adventure showing a touching relationship between grandfather and grandchild.

He teaches her about challenges facing the natural world around her, as we explore a meadow, stream, heathland, fire-charred pine wood, fossil rich cliffs, rocky cove and ocean life. Filled with fascinating facts and stunning illustrations, the books in this series encourage children to discover more about nature and the seasons.
