Hilda and the Runaway Baby

By Daisy Hirst

A fresh, warm-hearted story of finding new friendship from Daisy Hirst, one of the most exciting new voices in children's storytelling.

"An unusual gem of a book ... full of charm and humour" - Julia Eccleshare In her truly authentic and original voice, Daisy Hirst, creator of Alphonse, That Is Not OK To Do! introduces two loveable new characters to the picture book world: Hilda and the Runaway Baby. Hilda the pot-bellied pig lives at the foot of a hill. Life is uneventful and she is always where she expects herself to be. At the top of the hill lives a mischievous baby who is never ever where people expect him to be … which is why he is known as the Runaway Baby. But on a high-speed escapade in a pram, the Runaway Baby and Hilda’s worlds collide ... and an unlikely friendship begins.
