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.
This is one of the most comprehensive, beautifully written children's natural history books about wolves that we have read. The outstanding illustrations by Jonathan Woodward bring the text to life and draw you into the fascinating world of the much misunderstood wolf. The book completely dispels the myths, legends and fears about wolves and reminds us of the need to protect these wonderful animals and their environment. -- Wendy Brooker UK Wolf Conservation Trust
