LoveReading View on Wolves

One of our Books of the Year 2016 | 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 Synopsis

Rabbit borrows a book about wolves from the library. Straight forward 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. 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 has thrilled critics and booksellers alike. Wolves was Emily Gravett's debut book, winning her the Macmillan Prize for Illustration and her first CILIP Kate Greenaway Award.

This special tenth anniversary paperback edition celebrates the inventiveness and beauty that made the original such a classic. Featuring an additional mini book to cut out and keep; it's called 10 Little Rabbits, and it's Wolf's favourite book...
