The Bog Baby

Author: Jeanne Willis
Illustrator: Gwen Millward
Publisher: Puffin

A magical tale of loving and learning to let go.

One Spring, two girls find a creature in a pond. They nurture and care for it but gradually the bog baby sickens and the children have to ask their mother, from whom they have kept it a secret, for help. The response they get is unexpected and the story ends with a delightful revelation of interaction between children and bog babies continuing through the generations.
