“Don’t go too far,” her mother called. “It’s going to be dark soon.”
“Okay,” the girl said but kept running.
The wolf is the big-bad in just about every fairytale.
But why? How fair is that?
Vermette creates a new take on the “bad wolf” trope with her her little girl in the woods.
I really enjoyed this book.
It was short, sweet and had a different, older feel than many modern storybooks I’ve read.
I liked the inclusion of the older elements (i.e. leaving a gift for the wolf) and the illustrations were really well done.
This feels like the perfect book for a sleepy night.

One thought on “The Girl and the Wolf – Katherena Vermette”
The cover art is lovely and I’m all for undoing some of the stigmatization of wolves. They’re such beautiful animals! 🙂
