One minute he was dreaming about a fantastical Wild World filled with bioluminescent plants, wondrous creatures and vibrant landscapes, and the next... his whole house had been transformed into a vast jungle! And if that wasn't wild enough, Uncle Hector is nowhere to be found...
Uncle Hector loves the outdoors, and spends most of his time hunting for food, whittling tools, foraging for herbs and plants, and building shelters, but he's never experienced anything like this!
Matteo, on the other hand, LOVES the city. Growing up in London, he’s had everything he could possibly need right at his fingertips. All you can eat pizza any day of the week? Check! Smartphone with maps to find the nearest skate park? Check! WiFi to play unlimited video games? Check!
Now Uncle Hector has to rely on Matteo, and us, to save the day! Using the power of imagination, we'll venture into The Wild World - a place beyond anything you've experienced before. Matteo will have to discover the secrets of this incredible land and find Uncle Hector before the week is up! You’ll learn to build shelters, find clean water, cook on a campfire, master survival skills, and (most importantly!) uncover the magic of your imagination.
Can you help Matteo become a wild adventurer in time to rescue Uncle Hector? What sort of creatures and monsters await?! And how will you motivate Matteo to keep going, when all he wants is a nice hot bubble bath?! It’s time to find out!
