scrounge: /skrounj/ informal verb: to actively seek [books] from any available source
Finding Wild is a short, simple, and lyrical "concept book" that celebrates the idea of "wild." What is it? Where do you find it? The answers aren't straightforward, but with enough examples and adjectives, as well as beautiful, evocative images of a pair of children exploring the outdoors, we start to get a picture of this word.
Wild can be dangerous -- it can have teeth, or sting, or prick your finger. But it can also be soft and sweet-smelling, producing berries and beautiful flowers.
Toward the end we see how much harder it can be to "find wild" in cities that are orderly and covered in concrete. But wild is still there -- if we look for it!
