The Wolf Wilder
Go on an adventure with Katherine Rundell …
From the winner of the Costa Children’s Book Prize
‘A writer with an utterly distinctive voice and a wild imagination’ – Philip Pullman
Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora’s mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans.
When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.
A triumph! Exciting, moving, highly original, fierce, completely convincing * Philip Pullman * The Wolf Wilder has everything: it's a truly compelling read; it's beautifully written; it's totally original and yet has the familiar feel of an established classic * Jacqueline Wilson * The Wolf Wilder is the kind of novel that reminds you why books are worth reading and life is worth living * Lauren St John * A gorgeous flight of imagination set in a snowy Russian fantasy world, this has both the beauty and the fierce, funny and uncompromising storytelling style that sets Katherine Rundell's books apart. The Wolf Wilder is a Faberge egg of a novel - rich, bright and perfect * Robin Stevens *
