‘We live in the woods and we are wild’ is October’s mantra. However, on her eleventh birthday she is forced to abandon all that she knows to live in the big city. A city that has no space for her stories amongst its hustle and bustle, and certainly no space for her newly rescued barn owlet, or does it? This is storytelling with real heart, a classic in the making.' - Recommended by Una Ryan, Dubray Liffey Valley.


Katya Balen's October, October is a very special new addition to the shelf and deserves classic status - The Times Children's Book of the Week

A classic in the making for anyone who ever longed to be WILD.

October and her dad live in the woods. They know the trees and the rocks and the lake and stars like best friends. They live in the woods and they are wild. And that's the way it is.
Until the year October turns eleven. That's the year October rescues a baby owl. It's the year Dad falls out of the biggest tree in their woods. The year the woman who calls herself October's mother comes back. The year everything changes.

Written in Katya Balen's heart-stoppingly beautiful style, this book is a feast for the senses, filled with the woodsmoke smell of crisp autumn mornings and the sound of wellies squelching in river mud. And, as October fights to find the space to be wild in the whirling chaos of the world beyond the woods, it is also a feast for the soul.
