Gretel the Wonder Mammoth
  • Gretel the Wonder Mammoth

  • A mammoth NEW picture book from the award-winning Kim Hillyard!

    One peaceful Tuesday morning, a loud CRACK could be heard as the last mammoth on earth broke free from her icy shell - here comes Gretel the Wonder Mammoth! Everyone is so excited to meet her but as she settles into her new life, Gretel starts to feel a little overwhelmed and even a bit lonely...

    This positive, encouraging picture book teaches young readers that perhaps the bravest act a person (or mammoth!) can do is ask for help.

    Gretel the Wonder Mammoth is a perfect bedtime read for fans of Rob Biddulph, Rachel Bright and Jim Field.

    Also available from Kim Hillyard:

    Ned and the Great Garden Hamster Race: a story about kindness
