‘Though she be but little, she is fierce.’ – William Shakespeare
Wilde is the new novel from Children’s Laureate Wales, Eloise Williams, and is set in the fictional Welsh town of Witch Point, known for its legend of the Witch called Winter. Wilde moves in with her Aunt Mae, and soon unpacks her prized possessions in the tree house, including a seagull’s skull and her late mother’s copy of The Complete Works of Shakespeare. She later discovers a treasure trove of costumes in the attic, from a time when her mother and Mae performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the garden.
Eloise’s husband, artist Guy Manning, has created a map of Witch Point as well as an illustrated quote from A Midsummer Night’s Dream to accompany the book Wilde. Both are available to download – just click on the images below.
