In a plot of land at the edge of town, Ana grows only perfectly-sized plants and perfect-looking flowers, and throws all the irregular shoots and uneven seeds over the wall into the disorderly Wild. But as her garden gets tidier, neater and more constrained, the Wild begins to grow...
"This meditation on biodiversity makes its point with grace." – Kirkus Reviews
“Absolutely lovely. I love the way it gently demonstrates the importance of diversity in ecosystems (& communities) with wonderful bright illustrations of a flourishing and not-so-flourishing garden. I especially love the incidental inclusion of hearing aids on Ana, our gardener!” – Caroline Fielding, Librarian
“In an increasingly stressful world, we follow Ana try to take control by creating a perfect garden only to realise she can only achieve this by accepting the imperfect! This thoughtful tale of embracing biodiversity leaves plenty of room to open up insightful conversations with children into environmental stewardship and the many benefits of rewilding our gardens!” - Ashley Nwokorie, Allotment Cafe
"The Wall and the Wild is a wonderful picture book to help children learn about ecology and biodiversity and how through rewilding we can bring nature back to our gardens. Beautifully illustrated by Katie Rewse in bright, bold colours." – Babipur Book Club
