Written in Lynne Rickards' signature rhyme, this charming tale of two siblings learning to appreciate each other and work as a team features dynamic watercolour illustrations of Scottish wildlife and two wildcat kittens, which are endangered in Scotland.

From the author of best-selling Skye the Puffling and Rowan the Red Squirrel, Willow the Wildcat brings the beauty of the Scottish Highlands and its animal inhabitants to life.
