ACHUKA Book of the Day 1 Mar 2024
A triumph of writing, illustration and book design. Sure to be one of the standout titles of the year.
With exquisite lino-cut illustrations and watercolours from Angela Harding, this visual adaptation of Isabella Tree’s modern classic presents the enthralling story of how nature was returned to the Knepp Estate in West Sussex.
The illustrations help explain how rewilding works and include beautiful spreads featuring species that have returned and now thrive.
There are accessible in-garden activities to ‘re-wild’ your own spaces and the book encourages young readers to slow down and observe the natural world around them, and start to understand the connections between species and habitats, and the huge potential for life right on their doorstep.

Such visual, textural treats tonight to hear print maker extraordinaire Angela Harding talk about her art & work, Husband no.1 & Husband no.2 & illustrating Isabella Tree’s Wilding. I don’t think her audience could quite believe our luck as she passed around her prints & blocks! pic.twitter.com/j3sXLYoQJS
