We’re off to play,
like wild ones do!
Join the children in Wild and Free as they discover the joys of the great outdoors. From climbing trees and crossing creeks to rolling down hills and watching bugs, readers will almost smell the fresh air as they pore over the pages. Written in an energetic rhyme, this story will inspire readers ages 3 and up to go outside and be with nature – whether that’s through adventure, their creativity or just by being still.
Wild and Free is an energetic and atmospheric story about the great outdoors. Set in a stunning landscape, a cast of adventurous children set off from their caravans and tents to discover the joys of nature.
About the Author: Carrie Gallasch is an early childhood teacher in rural South Australia. Her passion for children’s literacy began twelve years ago, when she first experienced reading aloud to her students. Now with children of her own, Carrie has an excuse to follow them barefoot in the garden and be inspired by the mischief they get up to. She loves nothing more than a great story and a great coffee, but not necessarily in that order.
Carrie’s picture book Market Day (illustrated by Hannah Sommerville) was shortlisted for the 2023 CBCA Awards, while her debut picture book, Stitches and Stuffing (illustrated by Sara Acton), was a notable book in the 2018 CBCA Awards.
Martina Heiduczek grew up in a small fishing village on the Baltic Sea in Germany, where she spent most of her time drawing, reading, or galloping on her Shetland pony through the forests with flying piggy tails. These days she is an illustrator and lives in Australia. With a passion for colour and textures, Martina creates images that evoke emotion and thought in young minds. Her works are inspired by nature, people, places, and the moving as well as the silly things she sees around … magic is everywhere!
