Synopsis

WINNER of the English 7-11 Best Non-fiction Picture Book Award. Shortlisted for the SLA Awards 2018!

The wolf stalks the wilderness and our own imaginations. Uncover its mysteries in this beautifully written non-fiction picture book.

Majestic and fierce, proud and strong, the wolf has always been a source of fascination - and fear. It remains one of the most misunderstood of all creatures, frequently cast as our mortal enemy. The truth is that wolves and humans are more closely connected than we dare to admit.

With beautifully lyrical language, Smriti Prasadam-Halls explores the lightning speed, echoing howl and family life of these mysterious animals, revealing astonishing facts and overturning misconceptions as she does so. Wildlife illustrator Jonathan Woodward brings the creatures to life with breathtaking papercut collage artwork. This is non-fiction storytelling at its very finest.

The Ways of the Wolf has been endorsed by the UK Wolf Conservation Trust.
IN THE SAME SERIES: The World of the Whale.

Whether as villains in fairy stories or heroes of ancient myth, wolves have a special role in our imaginations, and this handsome information book will further inspire and intrigue the young...Jonathan Woodward's cut paper and collage illustrations are beautiful to look at and wonderfully atmospheric, and complement the text perfectly.

This is far, far more than just another non-fiction book, it's a glorious work of art that delves into the daily life of wolves in such a massively impressive way...We can't recommend it highly enough! It's howlingly good!

This beautiful book can be enjoyed by younger children as a picture book and by older ones as a fascinating non-fiction book...The lyrical prose is quite superb and the author will change our perceptions of these creatures. Wildlife illustrator Jonathan Woodward brings the creatures to life with breathtaking papercut collage artwork, set against various coloured backgrounds, which perfectly complements the text. A book to inform and to treasure.
