Because they sneak and creep about the woods in a most cunning way!
In Oliver L James’s charming book full of his own nostalgic watercolour illustrations, you and your children will be introduced to a wonderful fantasy world where the forests and woodlands are inhabited by the mischievous and crafty Wilybeasts (pronounced why-lee-beasts).
Designed to spark the imagination and encourage children to explore their own nearby outdoor spaces and learn about the wildlife surrounding them, Wilybeasts is a fun and charming book featuring four different seasonal stories.
The Wilybeasts spend their time looking for delicious things to eat! Accompany Frrock, Brripp, Brrubble and others on exciting adventures where they search for eggs, hunt for honey, battle over nuts, and look for winter treats. On the way they’ll encounter villainous pike, troublesome bees, angry squirrels and a very grumpy cat!
The unique and colourful book is beautifully laid out and suitable for a wide age range. Read it aloud to younger children, and encourage 8-10 year olds to read it for themselves. We think you’ll love it too! In fact, this book can become a firm favourite for the entire family.
Wilybeasts truly capture children’s imaginations, so you can also encourage them to look out for ‘signs’ of these fantasy woodland creatures while out on family walks or when playing in the garden or park. And look out for accompanying Wilybeast toys launching soon!
Oliver has always been fascinated with fantasy worlds and even collected gnomes as a child. He combines this with a love of foraging in his local Perthshire woodlands and also enjoys keeping chickens. All this, together with a background in professional model making, culminated in the creation of the Wilybeasts — fantasy woodland creatures who spend their time looking for the tasty things they can eat!
