Catching the Wild Waiyuuzee

Illustrated by Mike Reed

Avoiding her mother’s efforts to braid and bead her hair, a young girl imagines herself running away to a jungle.

Racing through her house to avoid having her hair braided, a young girl relies on her imagination to help her escape the threat of being tamed as she becomes a Wild Waiyuuzee.

The Wild Waiyuuzee wants anything but to be caught and tamed! If Shemama splashes her with water, rubs nut-nut oil on her head, and combs her with a piney pig’s tail, she simply won’t be a Wild Waiyuuzee anymore.

“William-Garvia adds lots of good sound effects, splashed across the pages in electric color by Reed.” – Kirkus Reviews
