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.
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.
