...but I know you lot will manage it.

Set in England in a vague time period, possibly post-war (I read it about 30 years ago), it's about a baby, raised by badgers and other forest creatures, who eventually, with a girl he 'rescues' from a normal, middle-class life, goes on a quest to save all wildlife.

It involves lots of walking across the country along ley-lines and lots of other environmental stuff that wouldn't be out of place now. Man=bad, wildlife=good sort of thing.

Seriously, nothing?

Is it this Incident At Hawk's Hill

Looks good I might order it for DD!

Ah, no, google led me to that one, but unfortunately not. More of a fantasy and set in Britain.

no time to do it for you right now, but you need to look at Abe Books website, it's a website with a search function for books. You put in all sorts of keywords from the plot, characters etc and it churns out all sorts of possible published books from that.

You're telling me there are TWO books about a child raised by badgers!?

MrsWembley Wed 24-Apr-13 13:36:13

Yes, two books!shock

Honestly, from what I've read about the other one, it sounds positively realistic compared to the one I'm thinking of...

Yes yes yes yes yes! Thank-you, Bike, that web site found it!

The Quest For The Faradawn!

Oh my word - I read that when I was younger!

I just remember loving it, but I'm a soppy bugger at the best of times. I keep thinking I'd like my DCs to read it, when they're old enough.
