Reviews for The Wolf's Secret

a lyrical, dreamy wander through some lush and terrifying woods, where a fierce wolf secretly longs for companionship. * The Guardian * The illustrations are wonderful with a beautiful wolf and dear little owls in a tangled forest. I love the magic which gives a little unfamiliar jolt to this modern fairy tale. * Armadillo Magazine * This stunningly illustrated folk-tale style story is surely one of the most beautiful books you'll read * BookTrust *
