Little Eepersip doesn’t want to live in a house with doors and windows and a roof, so she runs away to live in the wild – first in the Meadow, then by the Sea, and finally in the Mountain. Her heartbroken parents follow her, bringing her back home to ‘safety’ and locking her up in the stifling square of the house. But she slips away once more, following her heart into the richness of untrammelled nature and disappearing forever.

For the adventurer in your life – young or old – discover a dazzling lost classic and escape to distant shores…

Eepersip is a girl with the wild in her heart. She does not want to live locked up behind the walls of a house. So she runs away – first to the Meadow, then to the Sea, and finally to the Mountain.
