The Wild Before By Piers Torday

The Wild Before By Piers Torday


One stormy, snowy night, a pure silver calf is born on an ordinary muddy farm by the light of the moon. This is the legendary Mooncalf, whose arrival has been foretold since the dawn of time.

According to a dream passed down from animal to animal, if the calf dies, a great Terribleness will come – rising seas, a plague, skies raining down fire, the end of all things… and Little Hare vows to persuade all the animals to protect Mooncalf, whatever the cost.

But it’s easier said than done, and soon Little Hare realises that he is the only one who can save the world…

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, and now will have to read the other books before this one. It is such a sweet book about a little hare who wants to save the world, it is such a magical story as he sets out on his quest to tell all the animals to protect a magical calf that has been born. I loved the story, I loved all the illustrations and it was just a fun and adventurous book to read. I feel as though I learnt things from this book including climate change and above all else friendship. I hope any child reading this book will feel the same and learn that there is hope out there. Even though this is a children’s books I am an adult and thoroughly enjoyed it, so give it a go.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
