Wild by Annette Demetriou & Dawn White
Wild is a sensitive book which aims to open up conversations and help children realise that they don't have to follow the pack, give them the confidence to do the right thing and stay true to who they really are. Themes include peer pressure, toxic masculinity and gang mentality using the metaphor of gentle and wild wolves.
Wild is a great book for starting discussions and challenging thinking, an empowering story about staying true to yourself and not following the pack. Exploring empathy and strategies for dealing with difficult peer pressure situations, Wild is a great starting point for helping parents talk to their children about challenging situations they may come up against. The bold illustrations in a muted colour palette by Ryan Sonderegger amplify the important messages within the story.
Debut from Mum-Blogger Duo, Dawn White and Annette Demetriou whose blogs empower parents and children to talk about the challenges and pressure that they may come up against, reminding them that it's more than ok to be themselves.
Written by Dawn White and Annette Demetriou.
Illustrated by Ryan Sonderegger.

Owlet Press was founded by Samuel Langley-Swain in 2018, working with authors and illustrators with a shared passion – picture books which reflect the true diversity in children’s lives. Focusing on the challenges children face today and packaging these big issues into inclusive and accessible stories for small readers to digest and discuss with friends, families and schools. This indie children’s book publisher aims to change the world one book at a time, along with the best authors and illustrators to tell these stories.
Owlet Press have always published books that are 'incidentally inclusive' from day one and look to push this further with every title. With authors and illustrators from all walks of life - diversity is the driving ethos within this publisher. Owlet believe that it is key for young readers of colour to see children like them (and for white, non-disabled children to see children that don't always look like them) in books experiencing the joy and magic of playful, imaginative stories - a belief that we share at Babipur.
