When Ana tries to take control by creating a perfect garden, she comes to realize that nature is inherently wild.

In a plot of land at the edge of town, Ana grows only perfectly sized plants and perfect-looking flowers; she 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…

“A sweet, simple story about appreciating wildness in all its forms. This meditation on biodiversity makes its point with grace”—Kirkus Reviews

“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 Café

“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!”—Youth Libraries Group

"A wonderful picture book to help children learn about ecology and biodiversity and how through rewilding we can bring nature back to our gardens”—Babipur Book Club
