Celebrating 10th Anniversary of Wolves! Rabbit borrows a book about wolves from the library. He can't put it down! But soon a sinister figure with sharp claws and a bushy tail starts to creep right off the pages. You won't believe your eyes - but if you're a rabbit, you probably should. Brilliantly witty, ingeniously constructed, and with amazing artwork throughout, Wolves was first published in 2005 and thrilled critics and booksellers alike.

Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal 2006. The judges said: A real page-turner of a book. The style is spare, but at the same time there is so much in it, and the device whereby the book becomes the book within it is brilliantly employed. The illustrator’s style is totally unique, and the love and attention to detail here is obvious, even down to her having chewed the book herself to get the right effect.

Synopsis

Wolves by Emily Gravett

Rabbit borrows a book about wolves from the library. Straightforward enough. But what if a book should come alive? It's not long before a sinister figure with sharp claws and a bushy tail starts to creep up on Rabbit.

Wolves was Emily Gravett's debut book, and with it she won both the Macmillan Prize for Illustration and her first Kate Greenaway Award. This special tenth anniversary hardback edition celebrates the inventiveness and beauty that made the original such a classic. Featuring a gorgeous shaped jacket of the wolf himself with a surprise board game on the back, this book is a must for every burrow!

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Wolves by Emily Gravett here is a little film of Wolf's favourite book.

About the Author

Emily Gravett

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors.

Emily Gravett has a rare talent indeed for creating exceptional books for children. The winner of two Kate Greenaway Awards, her skill and wit are second to none as she pushes the boundaries and wrings maximum fun and detail from every page. Emily first sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves, in 2005, which has been followed by such brilliant modern classics as Meerkat Mail, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and The Odd Egg and the fabulous Bear and Hare series for younger readers, as well as the beautiful Tidy. Each book is unique and different from the last - and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily lives in Brighton with her family.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Prize-winning illustrator Emily Gravett’s distinctive illustrations are always full of wit bringing the unexpected into stories and injecting them all with delightful humour. There’s magic in Spells as a frog turns himself into a handsome prince – well, almost!, excellent advice for rabbits on how to spot the danger of wolves in Wolves, lots of useful tips on how to be braver than you feel in Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, a thoughtful exploration of how home often turns out to be best despite feelings of wanderlust in Meerkat Mail, a celebration of exuberant movement in Monkey and Me and a fresh and delightful look at Dogs.
