A wild thing has been waiting for Kira on her way to kindergarten as of late! It sits in a tree, has sharp teeth and is frightening. Kira would rather die than walk past the Wild once more. So she accompanies her dad to the office instead. It is boring at the office and all she can do is draw pictures. And so Kira draws a picture of the Wild, as it sits caught and locked up inside a jam jar. And really, the next morning it is no longer there!
But when Kira is provoked by two cheeky boys who steal her sandwich in kindergarten, she wishes for the Wild to be back. And indeed: at her disposal when she calls it, the Wild earns her respect from the two boys. From now on, things go really well with the boys and Kira doesn’t have to call upon the Wild again.
