The Bog Baby
When two small sisters go fishing in the magic pond, they find something much better than a frog or a newt: a bog baby. He’s little and blue with wings like a dragon, and the girls decide to make him their secret. Pssst! I won’t tell if you won’t! But the bog baby is a wild thing, and when he becomes poorly, the girls realise they must tell Mum. And she teaches them the greatest lesson of all – if you really love something, you have to let it go.
A touching and beautiful tale of magic, loss and friendship, which won the Booktrust Pre-School Award in 2008.
“A rather old-fashioned story, beautifully moving, which tells about friendship, family life and having to accept that animals have to live in different places” Wendy Cooling, Booktrust Award judge
