The Girl Savage


Monkey Escape at London Zoo: Link to Missing Schoolgirl!

Wilhelmina Silver’s world is golden. Living half-wild on an African farm with her horse, her monkey and her best friend, every day is beautiful.

But when her home is sold and Will is sent away to boarding school in England, the world becomes impossibly difficult. For lions and hyenas are nothing compared to packs of schoolgirls.

Where can a girl run to in London? And will she have the courage to survive?

An extremely special story of bravery, hope and the wildness that lives in us all.
