Hilda and the Runaway Baby (Hardcover)
In her truly authentic and original voice, Daisy Hirst introduces two endearing, unforgettable new characters -- and a friendship like no other. Hilda the pig lives in a small tin house at the foot of a hill. Life is peaceful, if a bit uneventful, and she is always exactly where she expects herself to be. At the top of the hill lives a curious baby who is never where people expect him to be, which is why he is known as the Runaway Baby. When a chance escape in his stroller brings the Runaway Baby zooming full-speed toward Hilda, their worlds collide, and the beginnings of an unlikely friendship promise to make Hilda's life a little less quiet and a lot more interesting. Kid-friendly and full of undeniable charm, Daisy Hirst's tale of two slightly solitary souls who make a surprisingly perfect pair has the look and feel of an instant, timeless classic.
