Win a free copy of Wandering Woolly (Elementary)
Little Woolly doesn’t want to graze on grass like her mother and the others in her pack; she wants to explore the world. When she follows a hopping frog to the river, Woolly tumbles, and suddenly she is being swept far away from the safety of her mother. Readers will learn facts about woolly mammoths and other extinct Ice Age animals as Little Woolly uses her instincts to make her way back.
